The magnificent works on the cover of our 2018 issue “Vapor” is a masterpiece by artists Barbara Tyler Ahlfield. American master artist Barbara Tyler Ahlfield creates dramatic, evocative and emotionally layered portraits that are whimsical and profound, elegant and refined, technically accurate yet spontaneous. Working in a variety of media, she prefers the use of graphite pencil combined with India ink line, colored pencil, watercolor, gouache, and oils. Ahlfield applies highly saturated, vibrant tones of pigment in delicate textured layers with masterful use of light, shape, tone, color, texture, and form. She carefully orchestrates portraits capturing the psychology of her subjects through harmonious compositions that emanate intimacy, delicacy, and strength.
