Throughout his work Jacques Demachy uses mixed media to create his illustrations. I feel that his work portrays a very elegant, delicate and soft effect. These are created through the media that has been used also the posture of the figure. Personally my favourite element of his work is the delicacy of the media combined with the strength of the detail included in certain areas. If I were to take any element of his work through to my own it would be the delicate nature of it as I feel that a beautiful effect is created through this. I feel that his work fits into the couture market.
