In this speed painting video, Swedish artist Maria Björnbom Öberg shows us her exceptional skill with drawing. The stationery she’s using are copic markers, Holbein colour pencils and Faber Castell Polychromos to add color to the design, and a white gel pen to add sparkles and highlights. This incredible hand drawn illustration features a beautiful Asian girl with her head encased in a glass bubble. The artist has paid attention to every detail, including individual strands of hair.
Öberg’s working on Daler Rowney pastel paper, which is quite toothy and takes layers and layers of pencil work without much fuss, allowing the artist to build a level of depth and colour saturation that is often quite difficult with color pencils. The pale olive color of the paper she’s chosen offers the perfect amount of contrast between the highly saturated foreground and the softer, gentler background.
If you or anyone you know are into realistic pencil drawings, Maria Björnbom Öberg’s art will inspire and amaze. You can see more art videos by Öberg on her Youtube channel BOKKEI and you can buy t-shirts, mugs, tote bags and a wide range of other products with her art works printed onto them through her Society 6 store.
