14/3: Hyper-reality, plant fiction
This ‘sketch’ took me 8 hours. I guess it has developed into more than just a sketch. I’m still a bit surprised as to how marks with pastel can look like something you would get in a photograph. I remember showing some Hyper-real paintings to a secondary school art class a few years ago. One pupil asked me if I could paint like that, I replied saying that I could never make something look as realistic as a photo. How wrong I was. What do you think?
