Mental, nice work, looks the same. Master copies are fun to figure out how they did it.


Jeff m. I was about to post Magritte. By far the smoothest painter I've seen in person. The MOMA in SF has some of his work in their permanent collection. You can't find any brush strokes standing a foot from his paintings and his colors are spot on. Going to check the other artist you named.

There are lots of artists/painters that have unbelievable technical ability. Dali comes to mind. His paintings are all disappointingly small, many no bigger that an 8 X 10 sheet of paper. Which is just amazing; his paintings look like photos, smooth as silk, razor sharp edges:

Then there are the photorealists. Amazing technical abilities, but their paintings are huge compared to Dali, typically 3 ft. X 4 ft. and larger. These paintings are photographic when viewed from a distance, or on a monitor. And working from a photo is also a whole different animal....

But for sheer extraterrestrial technical abilities, no one even comes close to the master:

Painting, on-the-fly, directly on top of wet stucco, on an unobservable scale, AND compensating for foreshortening is a feat of technical prowess that has yet to be equaled in the 350 years since the Sistine Chapel was painted. Never mind the fact that Michaelangelo illustrated dozens of muscles in his typical figures, far more than figure artists of his time or since.

Oh... and he carved a pretty mean sculpture too:

Spider...I've always liked Shag's stuff too. Retro.

I always thought that Michealangelo's study of the Libyan Sibyl had what appeared to be a climbing pose. As homage I did one in charcoal back in

Justin,
Really like the 4th and 5th one posted! 6th in progress is really interesting as well.
Hope it rains a bit more. :)

Tiki - I knew you saw rock climbing in everything (a familiar affliction), but even in Michelangelo, eh?

Good stuff all, and amazing undertaking Mental. Down to mixing your own paint!
The frame recreation is off the charts obsessive!

It takes a lot of cojones to go your own way, artistically, TJI. I was just toproping, but you guys are leading!

Nice charcoal drawing, TJ! Charcoal scares me.

Gotta agree. For a painting that looms large in the 20th century psyche, I too was a little disappointed at the small size of The Persistence of Memory

Yet another fuzzy point and click photo..........
