Melissa Cooke is an artist I found on another artist blog that I’ve now uselessly forgotten, but you can find her website Here if you want more information.
Her main line of work is detailed portraits that are often quite quirky or have different messages/meanings, but she also shows her photography that she takes herself and uses to draw from. They come under different titles, but I’ve chosen to show you a small selection of different images.
I like her work because it’s different. I really enjoy how detailed her paintings are, but the fact is she’s not just a talented artist, she has further ideas behind her work and that’s why I’ve taken an interest in her work. I would love to be able to draw to this level, and want to attempt some realism artwork.
All the images below are her paintings, unless it shows her painting, in that case it’s a photograph.
