Artist fills his sketchbook with vibrant paintings of nature

While working outside, artists capture the beauty of a moment in time. Brooklyn-based illustrator Angela Mckay, better known as Ohkii Studio, takes her sketchbook with her on all her excursions and fills the pages with vibrant pages of picturesque locations, from sunny seasides to fields. flowery.

Originally from Australia and Thailand, the artist has a particular fondness for depicting warm places and lush green vegetation, which frequently appear in his illustrations. “My paintings are inspired by distant journeys, long summer days and the wonders of the natural world,” Mckay told My Modern Met. “I work primarily in watercolors and gouache, sketching quickly in journals on my travels or later creating paintings with intricate detail.”

The artist uses simplified shapes and repetitions of shapes in order to paint a show as quickly as possible. As a result, this stylistic choice also gives the illustrations a pleasing, pattern-like quality that makes the painting burst with color and energy.

You can purchase prints and original artwork through Mckay’s website and stay up to date with his latest projects by following the artist on Instagram.
