Artist Helen Sear is a woman of many talents; she was trained and practiced as a photographer and creates art with a variety of different mediums. This series of images is hauntingly beautiful and involved Sear first photographing her subjects. She shot portraits of the back of their heads while they gazed into the distance. She then manipulated these photos on her computer, finishing them off by digitally painting on top of them.

This overlapping of mixed mediums created captures with a layered effect and gave them a sense of depth. The resulting pieces are ghostly since the figures are somewhat transparent. These images by artist Helen Sear are exquisite; they prove how effective using more than one medium can be.
