Re: Hyperrealism art
I should think it would require a high resolution source photo and a highly detailed drawing. Many such paintings that I have seen have all the fine nuanced light reflections on water, glass and metal painted with a sure hand.
My efforts at doing very realistic paintings is that at some point I get lost in the fine details and end up painting a dark streak where the reference photo showed a lighter streak. Or some bit gets painted out of place. I'm not sure if I needed more detail in the drawing, or less, to address the issue of getting lost in the painting details. I have managed to recover some paintings after such mistakes, often without others noticing the problem.
