It looks like art really runs in the Helnwein family, with these portraits from Mercedes Helnwein looking absolutely amazing. From afar, it looks as if the portraits are shaded with one color for each section; however, if you look at them carefully, you will notice that many colors are incorporated.

These little rainbow-colored details give dimension and life to the portraits. Mercedes Helnwein is also the daughter of Gottfried Helnwein. You can check out more of her amazing art in the gallery.
