I have been researching hyperrealism over the past few months, and It seems that most (if not all) produce really great works of art, but do not go to any extreme lengths to do this nor do they use complex studio set ups.
Some just paint in regular studio light / daylight - no black out curtains / no complex mixing, just plain old color matching from photo to canvas, and a laptop.
Ok, they tend to paint on overly large canvas, most also state that it takes anywhere from 100 hours to 200 hours to produce their works, but this it to be taken with a pinch of salt, as some artist have over 80 - 120 works of art in their catalogue, taking their current age in to account, some would have had to start painting at 6 years of age!,....(just do the math)
I really want to produce a realistic portrait, and I think I can get there with a "stress-less" method of DMP, more to follow in a few weeks on this,...
What do you think of hyper-realism and DMP ?
Does anyone on here aim to produce hyper realistic works?
