I’m a fan of technical skill and precision (I’m sure you’ve noticed).  Photorealism, or “hyperrealism”  are  of the “floor routine” of painting, inclusive of the splits, aerial cartwheels,  and  a series of round-off back handsprings.  Very showy.

As with photography, the work relies largely on the composition.  Artist Jason de Graaf’s completely focused paintings certainly make my shutter stop.
