Greta Van Campen is an artist based in Portland, Maine whose graphic paintings are a thing of beauty. Greta works from her own photographs, deciding on large compositional elements and dynamic lines, then paints in layers and masks off entire areas or smaller details with washi tape as she goes along – filling in more detail. you can read more about her and her process here. it’s really cool to see how she paints plein air as well.

see her most recent work here and on Instagram.

  1. Thanks for sharing Greta with us. I think it is really cool that she has taken some modern techniques (among them using a modern medium – washi tape) to create paintings that harken back to other works from the past.

    Fantastic composition, vibrant color and line. She has a great talent for strong perspectives, yet keeping the subjects personal.
    Love her work!
