This is quite brilliant! The likeness is amazing. I just don't undertand the urge to paint photographically. I always feel that I have a camera for photographs and I struggle to capture the 'impression' instead. Isn't diversity wonderful? A hundred artists, a hundred different objectives!

But I knew there was a new level of realism I could achieve if I just took the time and patience learned how to paint. After taking 2 months off of drawing I and looking over my portfolio I realized that there was a way to get a true photo realistic piece on canvas.
Six months ago I was in Lowe's getting mounts for a frame, walking past the paint department I realized what's the difference in the acrylic paint you buy in the art store and the paint here.
