PopUp Painting’s team includes 14 artist, but today we have interviewed Rebecca Hunter one of the first team members to join PopUp Painting.
1 – Introduce Yourself
I’m Rebecca Hunter an artist and illustrator. My works range from expressive oil paintings to controlled architecture studies.
2 – What materials/process do you use, to create your art?
I paint places I’ve been to and I am familiar with. I collect images of my subject matter through on site sketches and photographs, then when I’m at my studio I transform these into finished pieces of work. I add an element of imagination to my final pieces as well.
For my cityscape drawings I use ink and quill, whereas with my paintings I use oil paint and tend to use my hands instead of brushes.
3 – If you could become one of your characters/works of art, which would you chose and why?
There’s a painting I’ve done called Above London, it’s a very atmospheric ink painting of London at night and the stars above. It makes me feel very calm, I’d say that painting.
4 – What is/was your favourite piece completed so far?
Same as above – it seems to be unique to my style and has a nice balance of structure and expression.
5 – If you could pop up and paint anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
India – the colours and energy would be amazing to capture again!
6 – Just for fun! Invisibility power or power to move things with your mind?
Definitely to be invisible, I’m very nosy!
