my husband and i stared at this for awhile because we didn't believe that this is a painting. let alone done with acrylics. bravo. that's some serious skill.

well I like it! I thought about making a similar drawing, but with graphite, since it's my personal interest aswell :)

I agree with Robbie (Yamenja) that when we saw this it made a much greater impression than the photo does somehow, perhaps in no small part due to its prominent size.

The multiple depths of field are captivating here, particularly where you manage to bring the viewer into and through the picture plane itself by manipulating the several focal changes in short order and effectively isolating the main subject area through extremely sharp contrast.

yeh i wanted quite a bit of depth here before and after the focal point.. it works ok.

rest assured - it isnt....I havent met anyone who doesnt have problem with it

Denis reckons outside on an overcast day is best - decent light but no direct light is best but hard to get!

yeh denis is right.. outside natural light, but overcast. spot on... so much is unavoidably lost in a photo

especially for you guys, I guess, when you are working with such fine detail - that really struck me with Simon's show, that I was seeing detail that i'd not seen in the photographs

this is a principle of hyperrealism and even photorealism. people cant understand the difference between a photo and a painting and what makes us with to paint like one. but thats cos they have never seen photorealism in reality. once you see it there, it can do much more than an enlarged photo can

yes, I must admit, when I first saw pics of photorealist pieces online, years ago, I didnt really get it - I have been thoroughly converted now though - meeting Denis here was my epiphany!

photo doesnt do it justice...really hard to get good photos of paintings eh....still looks fab, but I know it's even lovlier than this....i think also sometimes dA robs some of the warmer tones from submissions

All these chrome/metal reflection pieces are unreal, so many details in such a deceptively simple item!

the work is a personal subject matter, but it makes a simple untrendy item beautiful. a mundane image that is given potential- a key idea in photorealism. thanks
