The Making of...Art by Tara Phillips

Tara creates hyper real portraits that make you look twice - she shared with us some process GIFs to reveal the magic behind her style.

Enjoy checking them out below.

Tara says: I started my Cooper piece as an exercise to loosen up my painting style and try for a more textured/traditional feel. I love experimenting with new brushes (and also love Twin Peaks!), so this painting was a lot of fun and it unfurled pretty naturally. 


Tara says: This recent artwork was also an exercise to loosen up my painting technique. Often with client briefs, my work can get really tight. It's nice to sometimes let loose and allow myself to be intuitive while I paint.
