Johannes Wessmark is a famous Swedish painter that works in a Hyper Realistic style. As all artists that can work in this rather difficult style dedicates a good deal of his works to the female body. He uses acrylic, oil and colored pencils to make a very realistic compositions
At the beginning of his career, he was working as an illustrator for 15 years.
This is how he describes his style:
“The techniques I use are watercolor, colored pencils, oil and gouache. The colored pencils have always been my favorite tool, although I have painted many watercolors and air-brush paintings through the years. My first model-painting “Emmy resting” is a good example of the mix between air-brushed gouache and colored pencils.”
