Portrait artist Hilarie Couture uses colorful, impressionistic brushstrokes to bring her subject’s essence to life.
Romantic Impressionism to contemporary Realism.
Figurative and portraits the most. I love to paint people.
Oil, pastel, mixed medium, charcoal, glass, watercolor.
I used to just try to render everything realistically, and I feel like I am developing my own voice as an artist. I work on different elements to try to gain a better understanding of my craft, so sometimes it’s light or color or application of paint… whatever I can do to continuously grow.
I started drawing at two years old. Well, I colored clothes on my dad’s playboy magazine women… can I say that?
