I like it. I really like paintings like that. Like Impressionists. I think i am the only one around here who don't like hyper realism. Check out my gallery if you have will or time and tell me what you think : ) I am still an art student so don't be rough. Sorry for bad english : /
Hi, well in DA although we are many people (20+ million) lot of them are kids under 20, and that's the reason about hyper realism so favored. They just haven't a developed taste for art, the height of perfection for them is a copied photo, as this is what they try to do most doing fan art. More in general hyper realism is obsolete after we have photography and even more 3d programs. It just doesn't make sense for me to take a photo of pile of tomatoes or apples and then to try to make it in oil colors. So and so the result would be inferior, unless one has the talent of Holbein. If you look early still lives of Monet they are perfect and precise realistic pieces, however would he become "Monet" if he was stuck to this? So far it is much harder to make a convincing object with few strokes of a palette knife, then to go sluggish with a small brush and the result is more expressive. OK, will write you about your art in a note as here is not suitable for a long thread.
I fully agree with you. I had that Hyper realism phase myself when i was in high school and i failed at it. Now I don't see point in hyper realism. Maybe if it is combined with surealism. Ok no hurry : )

wow, I found myself really drawn to this image. The colour scheme with just the right amount of contrast and the expressive way of painting conveys the feeling of being there, rather then looking at a photo of the place. As I love sailing and the ocean, this reminds me of the sailing season in the summer Though the visible brush strokes don't stick to a direction and that makes it seem messy, it fits the theme of water. My favourite part of the painting is the sail boat and the crisp edge with suggested detail you gave it. good work!
