In this day and age, there are few things more pleasing than seeing people with talent using their talent to make awesome things. And this is awesome. The way you rendered the plastic bag is nothing short of miraculous. The tiny swirls on the upper part of the bag, beneath the ziplock are incredible, as is the rendering of the moisture on the fruit.
The only possible criticism I can give is that if one looks closely at the image, the downward-pointing white triangular fold in the center of the image (beneath where the stem ends inside the bag) seems just a tad bit too strongly whited.
This is unbelieveably difficult to accomplish with oils. Not quite as hard with acrylics and the ability to add a touch of color and highlights to gel. But in oils....just jaw dropping awesome work. I can only dream of being that talented. Bravo!
Wonderful work! This is utterly a new level of realism. I love those little details such as the condensation of water on the bag near where the grapes are in contact with the plastic. Really awesome stuff!
I know that in fact you took a picture a wrote "oil on canvas" just to make fun of us... haha just kidding, but still i find it hard to believe, everytime I see one of these pictures. Soma part of me consider a massive complot to swindle us, mortals. It amazing.
Holy crap I saw this and I was like, why did a bag of grapes gets daily d? So I clicked it and I was still wondering and I read the disc and I choked on my coffee. This is so amazingly realistic and I just can't get over it...I'm still suspicious.
Usually, in cases like this, if I keep looking at the painting I can eventually see things like brushstrokes etc. But with this, I keep looking at it, and I still can't see it as anything other than photograph! It's kind of blowing my mind.
