Shades of Colour – The New Release by Ben Jeffery

Step into the enchanting world of Hollywood glamour with two of the most iconic leading ladies ever to grace the silver screen, Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn.
Ben Jeffery brings the duo to life in his distinctive artistic style, adorned in champagne gold leaf. Set against Audrey’s signature Tiffany Blue and Marilyn’s vibrant Hot Pink, these stunning Shades of Colour provide the perfect backdrop for these timeless stars.

Ben first realised he wanted to be an artist in secondary school. A few classmates and him used to have bets to see who could draw the best portrait of someone. He really enjoyed going to school and showing them to see their reaction. He painted a portrait of his dad for a mock GCSE which got admired by the entire art class.

Ben continued to study Art to degree level. He received a lot of guidance and advice throughout the years but his technique is mostly self taught. When studying Art at College and University, he was mainly left to his own devises. He was given a subject and asked to come up with a portfolio of work and to develop an idea to a few final images. Teachers didnt teach him techniques, which meant he had to learn on our own.

He always wanted to paint with oils and come up with colourful detailed paintings, this wasn’t always well received by his tutors, but his classmates were always quite impressed with what Ben came up with. It was then that Jeffery picked up methods and techniques to get the mark making he wanted with oil paints. Its a case of trial and error a lot of the time, trying new ways of controlling the paint, from there his style has evolved.
