The kind of realism that I’m interested in is about presenting painted objects that are so hyper-realized that they look like they could be picked up from the paper; whole and complete in your hand. I’m trying for realism that invokes the senses of taste, smell and sometimes even sound. – emotional connection. I’ve taken the claw as far as I can go with that goal.
I’ll start the rocks in the spring, right now I want to paint something tropical.
