Learn About Photo Realism

For some artists, it is the ultimate challenge – “the ability to create something from nature to make it look like the same item is is immolating.” Almost a form of “copy-catting.”  I constantly challenge myself in all medium of Art.  Photorealism seems to be my style. I understand and respect all genres of art and I have attempted other genres with mild success. I truly believe in “studies.” What better way to study by re-creating as close to realism as possible.  I really appreciate the real beauty, observe it for hours, to go even deeper, try drawing it.  “The more you see, the more yo understand the illusion.”
