Finding the soul

It can be hard to blend and fade your art while still keeping it beautiful at the same time.  It is easier to do the fade with watercolor, but Artist Ryan Hewett has created beautiful faded/abstract portraits using oil paint.

I am incredibly impressed by the amount of emotion he brought out in these abstract works.

Can you see the emotion?  What do you think of them?  Is this something that you would like to try?

  1. I can see the emotion in some of the painting and the ones I do see it in I think are really good. The ones I can't tell the emotion I don't like. I still wouldn't want to do this because I'm not really good at art so I would fail trying to do this.

  2. I love art that tells a story or has meaning, to me it makes the art more beautiful and eye catching.This artist made the emotion easy to see in his work. I would probably fail at attempting this, but I think it would fun to try.

  3. The first three pieces i enjoy i like the the way they are put together the details are more profound compared to the other ones. But all off the other lower pieces are a little off maybe its just me but i think he ruined the faces by making the outsides so distort. I would enjoy trying to recreate one of them.

  4. These are so unique. The colors are not overly bright, but they create a simple and profound feel to the art. I like how the subject is at the very center of the canvas so your eyes go right to the person's face. I like the one that are more blurry, because then I can imagine a different face for the person than what is painted.

  5. I like the colors of these paintings. It is different because the colors make the paintings seem sad and the faces are not smiling. The faces are very close up and makes you look at the smaller details.

  10. We already kind of did something like this with tht packet of people and bringing the highlights and lowlights in. That was one of my favorite projects and I would like to even do something like that for a ceiling tile.

  13. I like these a lot because they pop out and look really cool. I feel like this would be very hard to do, but it also seems like something that would be fun to do.

  14. These look really cool but they all seem very sad looking. The only emotion I can see on the faces in the paintings is sadness, it's something in the eyes that makes them seem sad.

  17. I can see the emotion in the pictures. Looks like a lot of work and dedicated time to do these. Looks like they only use a few different colors to give it more texture.

  18. takes a lot of time because it nots just splashing paint down. it takes time to mix the paint and make it just right. brings out good color to express the face.

  19. This probably took a lot of time to do. It's very cool how he brought a face out of them. The paint looks really subtle so i think it would be hard.

  20. i like these paintings. They are creative, and ugly, but in a good way. These definitely took alot of time, mixing colors and not just splashing them down but getting them just right so they actually look like something

  21. That is pretty cool I like all the color that was put into it.

  22. I like this alot because it makes you have to look hard to see what it is. Is it a painting or something else? i dodnt know but its really creative and has good use of colors in it.

  23. I can't see any emotion to these pictures. These pictures are unappealing to me. I would not want to try this out for myself.

  24. You can see the emotions in the face and in the color he uses to paint them, the brush strikes in these paintings are really cool too. They make the paintings look like they have texture, which also helps with seeing the emotions.

  25. This is cool, but a little creepy. I feel like all these people that draw people in weird ways like this had a bully in high school or something. Any normal person would just draw a beautiful human being because that's what we are. Not the ugly beasts that he's drawing.

  26. This artwork makes you look deep into the painting to see what he has painted. I like how the people dont have a lot of detail so they look creep but they have just the right amount that you can tell that they are a person.

  27. This is intersting but also kind of creepy. This is also very deeep though. Its got much more meaning than anything else ive seen

  28. i think its is cool it looks boarding

  29. These people look very confused. They look like they have lost everything and have nowhere to go. I would not want to try this because I would feel bad for the real people that are like this.

  30. This kind of looks like something we did earlier this year. And I loved that project. I do believe that it is very pretty and I like how it is abstract almost.

  31. This is really nice, i look how detailed he got it, i would have to say this is probably one of my favorites.

  32. Theres a lot of emotion in these paintings and i feel like they would lake a long time to do.

  36. You can see all of the small detail, and all of the work around it that really makes these pieces of art unique. These pieces show all of the emotions of the artists.

  37. I like the way they did the colors. It is so cool

  38. These are pretty cool but on some of them you can't notice what they are. They look like a big blob of mixed colors. If you can make some of them look like you can see something then why not to do it to all of them.

  39. These are sweet to look at. They really make you think and study the painting. I would totally love to try these to see what I could create. It would be fun!!

  40. I can see the emotion and the message he is trying to send. It's beautiful in that aspect. But they really don't catch the eye.

  41. I love the abstract feel of these. They're really cool. I like how the colors blend and fade. There's not too much detail, but you can still see the faces.
