‘The Lookout’ is the first in the ‘Everyday Angels’ collection by Hamish Blakely. This piece combines classicism with modern styles and designs.
Softly painted wings contrast with the rugged denim and contemporary fashion. The brushwork is very playful and adds a lightness to the painting whilst still feeling grounded, perfectly complimenting the subject.
The colours are very emblematic of modern Americana, a clever twist against the classical angel elegance.
The use of shape in this painting consolidates the modern contrasts. A series of fierce tattoos lead to the central star worn boldly, fitting for an angel.
‘The Lookout’ highlights the strength in femininity, a positive figure you would want to watch over you.
We have framed this series in a black frame with a white slip. These prints are varnished and finished to the highest standards.
