About The Artwork

Portrait ‘Scarlet Smile’ inspired by Scarlett Johansson Although this is painted in watercolours it has areas of texture paste added, a technique which not only makes the watercolors misbehave, but also adds brush stoke patterns of interest. Allowing the paint application to tell the story the three shoulders on the portrait were formed not via artistic decisions but instead by the runs and mixing on the paper. Almost like a fortune teller uses tea leaves, Sophie likes the paint and unpredictability to take the helm. Painted onto an oil painting art board, acid free, and is 1.4mm thick. Full copyrights of the artwork remain with the artist, Sophie Huddlestone. Artists Description: A female portrait with a confident yet gentle smile. Close viewing depicts raised areas of gestural abstraction in a painterly style while remaining a compelling modern portrait when viewed further away. I wanted to capture the power of a subtle smile without a brash attitude. The addition of movement via the shoulders was formed by the paint application, almost like an artsy form of reading tea leaves. I enjoy allowing the paint to blend and move on the surface to create its own story which I then evolve further.

Sophie joined Saatchi Art in May 2019, specialising in portraits with a twist and animal paintings with a twirl. The swirly brush strokes make it easy to spot a Sophie Huddlestone painting, the majority of collectors being from the U.S. and U.K. Sophie is based in Leicestershire and fills her art studio with beach theme items to encourage a carefree holiday mood while painting. The blue tinted glasses that Sophie wears are for Irlen Syndrome which could be the quirk that encourages the happy vibes in the colour combinations. Texture and patterns inspire Sophie, with an added mischievous streak when it comes to watercolours and an unusual method of combining oil paints with watercolours.
