This collection of stunning oil paintings are by Kellie Orr, she is a painter based in Vancouver, Canada. Kellie started this body of work two years ago and has been painting most of her life. All of the paintings below were created using oil paints on canvas. Each piece takes three to four weeks to complete!
Kellie paints with a strong use of color and composition; each painting is a labor of work with careful detail and precision, using multiple layers of paint and glaze.
kellie uses the same process for each painting and usually paints one work at a time. She will generally determine a concept for the work first – and takes inspiration from her personal experiences, podcasts, notes from philosophers, and interviews with psychologists and researchers. Once the idea for a concept is born, she will imagine the visual, photograph a reference image, and digitally manipulate the image to create an aesthetic which will be the reference for the final work.
