Over the past year and a half I have shown you many artworks that you have to look at twice because you can’t determine whether it is a painting/drawing or a photograph. I love those, obviously. Some of the greatest artists in the world can’t do that but I think it is an aspiration of many. Here we go again…
Doug Bloodworth is another one of those artists. His paintings are so realistic that you have to look all too closely at the image. Each painting is done in either oil on canvas or airbrush on wood panel. He has done countless other paintings in many different styles. He also does western paintings, murals, cartoons, billboards and buses.
When I first saw these, I thought, no way. These still lifes are soooooo realistic that i almost can’t believe it. With most paintings or drawings you can see the brush strokes or charcoal marks. I am not find that in these.
