I still regret not buying a tiny painting of a lemon, in Prague 2 years ago…

Hard candy is more to my taste. This one is by Gina Minichino. I can’t afford it, but I’d love to see it on my wall.

I dunno, just saw this the other day and think THIS is amazing exampels of realistic painting.

Which is real and which is the painting?


#5

You know an apple, cucumber and yes, even the banana are fruits right?


#6

For photorealism in art, nobody does it better than Richard Estes, IMO.

As a realism painter (not photorealism), I never did understand the single object, floating in space thing. An apple, a cucumber, an eye.

Gimme some context, man. Or at least make it interesting and show that eye removed from a socket.

Paying forward the needless pedantry I received earlier today, minus the snotty attitude;

If it was floating in space, the cast shadow would be much lower on the canvas, or it wouldn’t be there at all.

:wink:

That said, I agree that not even bothering to include any indication of a horizon line does annoy me as an artist.

only $28 for the banana… i want to buy it and well you know.


#10

Why is the banana obligatory? I would think it would be optional.


#11

Also, humans should be reclassified as Pan Ludus in the binomial nomenclature.


#12

Good question. I’ve always wondered whether “Just look at it!” is an exclamatory sentence or an imperative sentence.


#13

I’d say it’s an efficient use of words and is both. :slight_smile:
