These works are really shocking. I’m trembling if I think at your technical skills and at the careful that you put on minimal details, colours and light. (I don’t understand the critic on the distance of the eyes, or on the proportion of hands…these critics simply doesn’t match with Art (and its history)…moreover, I don’t understand all the critics on the beauty, shape or colours of a subject, because I think that if I want to depict an “error” of mother nature, like me, or the 2 girls - or is the same? -, in your paintings [joking], I can do that; mother nature did it.)
But… I feel that I would be more enthusiastic, and appreciate those 2 great pieces of Art, only if I was sure that they are not made painting over, or copying, a photograph.
I know that many big artists do that, either from the past or present days, but I feel that I’m really shaky only if I know that those pictures came out from the real mind and soul of the body who painted them… Anyway 6 stars.
Mmmm, and not try to say me that you didn’t copy from a photograph. Sorry I really cannot believe that, at least until someone who I can trust can convince me…
MMMMMM n.2, after some watching, I’m pretty sure that those 2 pictures are 2 photographs retouched, through the overlaying of slightly painted layers.
I’m sorry. Interpretations like mine are part of the destiny of photorealistic painting.
Anyway these 2 works, that, I insist, I appreciate a lot, are 2 photographs retouched by painting in Photoshop and/or Painter.
