Hyperrealist artist Cj Hendry.

Australian hyperrealist artist Cj Hendry creates pencil drawings illustrating blobs of paint. This might not sound like the type of art that will leave you floored, but trust me, it will.

 

In her ongoing series ‘Complimentary Colors the Australian artist Cj Hendry recreates blobs of oil paint in a mindblowingly realistic way. Like how are these drawings not photographs?? And how can a blob of paint be so aesthetically pleasing to the retina??

The craftsmanship of hyperrealism doesn’t get a lot of credit on the contemporary art scene these days, but I personally think that the technique of layering pigment in such a masterful way deserves the occasional round of applause. I mean, just look at how perfectly executed these drawings are:
