Why I do photo realism.

Why I do photo realism.

On another art site there is a thread about detail and texture and why do people do it. I mean, why not just take a photo? This was my response. I think it is worth repeating. I personally think there is a big misconception as to why people in general and myself specifically are attracted to doing extreme detail and complex texture. Anyone that's been around the art world for very long has heard the phrase 'draw what you see' over and over again.

Election day

Election day

In case you've been living in a cave, today is election day in the U.S. VOTE PEOPLE.

Thanks for the watch - this is very much appreciated! I need to return something to the community...

I am running a blog where
you can get a free book on drawing portraits -> [link] and a web directory link exchange for portrait artists -> [link]
Felt bad about my response to your comment, trying to hard to be witty, the painting of Nina went down well and all the things you said were the reason they liked it.
Don't be silly. I know exactly what you meant. Our paintings and drawings are our babies and we never like them to not be loved.

Glad the client like it.
