XUE WANG Xue paints with oils on board, because she enjoys working with the smooth and light texture they offer. She sketches first for the right composition, and then makes a mock-up to trace onto the board. She creates many layers, starting with the far
background and finishing with the detail at the front. Xue paints at home on her easel, with her dog Kuma and daughter Maisie – who is sometimes a little too helpful! She studied in China and originally focused on fashion, however she hated
the industry as she says there was too much negativity and backbiting. Explaining her process, she adds: “For each character, I first sketch out the simple faces. Then I add makeup, hairstyles, clothes and accessories – a bit like when you style a real person!”
