Pencil Drawing | Bec Winnel
I enjoy creating beautiful and detailed pencil drawing portraits of imaginary women in imaginary worlds that celebrate the feminine spirit. My ‘girls’ are often accompanied by elements of nature, fantasy and items from bygone eras.
My color palette is mostly soft, subdued pastels, and my mediums include pencil drawing, pastel, watercolour and acrylic. To further enhance the mystery, my girls often fade into or out of the background, as if they are nearly there, speaking to you from a distant place.
I am represented by Thinkspace Gallery US, Just Another Agency AU and Illustration Ltd Worldwide, a member of PRISMA Artist Collective and an advocate with Element Eden.
Whilst I love creating my girls, I also enjoying experimenting in all creative forms including abstract painting, exploring color, texture, pattern and various subject matters.
Winnel’s portraiture combines the illustrative precision of a graphic artist with the sophistication and emotiveness of a painter. The ethereal quality of the her work is the result of carefully accreted layers of pencil, pastel and washes of paint.
Her pieces are rendered in a palette of candy pastel hues, with a gossamer like delicacy. Hyper-real and uncannily executed, the seduction of the imagery is ultimately contemporary and odes to feminine beauty that combine nostalgia with timeliness, hyper-realism with stylistic license – hovering seductively in the realm of dream.
