Realistic Paintings That Will Make You Question Reality:-

There are some realistic paintings that really make you question reality;
however, they are not only making us question reality – they also prove how art
can be powerful and fascinating. A remarkable level of artistic skill is needed
to create a painting that looks like photography. And indeed, some realistic
paintings are so realistic that you feel absorbed by their compositions – it can
portraits, or anything else, but they really look like a still of video. But,
what are exactly realistic paintings? It’s very important to make one crucial
remark – realistic painting practice should not be confused with Realism, which
was an artistic movement that began in France in the 1850s, that sought to
portray real and typical contemporary people and situations with truth and
accuracy, and not avoiding unpleasant or sordid aspects of life. In this
article, we are not focusing on Realism, but on contemporary realistic paintings
that move the boundaries of visual perception. Conceptually, there have been a
lot of discussions about the use and position of “reality” in contemporary art.
Of course, these discussions are the product of philosophical and theoretical
debates that reject the notion of “reality in postmodern world”. Virtual
reality, integral reality – those are only two terms that are being used to
dismantle the “traditional concept of reality”. Is this article real in terms
that you read it thanks to pixels and wireless Internet? By answering questions
like this one, many artists began with the practice that would later be labeled
as Hyperrealism, Photorealism, Realistic art and so on. And the majority of the
works from our list of realistic paintings belongs to these movements. But, let
us forget theory, and focus on aesthetics. In this article, you will only see
some examples of the fascinating realistic painting practices.

It is the work of a few amazing "Artist's" that have inspired me to try and paint
the referance im working from as close to the referance as possible.


Terry Rodgers is an American figurative painter known for his large-scale
canvases that focus on portraying contemporary society in all its glory. Rodgers
is probably best-known for his iconography of muscled young men and slender
young women; all more-or-less (un)dressed, adopting lascivious poses in a
luxurious décor, ostentatious and baroque.


Dan Witz is American painter, who also had a career as a street artist. He is
interested in group figure paintings and what he calls, academic realist
painting. His works depict mosh pits at punk shows, inspired by his experiences
as a musician, and deal with the identity of human beings in modern societies.
The painting process starts with digital photos, which are later edited in
Photoshop and printed onto canvas as underpaintings. Then, Witz starts applying
color with traditional glazing techniques.


Teresa Elliott is an American artist from Texas who graduated from The
University of Kansas with a BA in Fine Arts. Working for years as an
illustrator, in 2005 she returned to her fine art roots, dedicating herself
exclusively to her studio practice as an oil painter. She has been exhibiting
widely across the States.
I will soon be submitting a few examples for truly magnificent art by
these great artists.
