Re: The photo-realist as craftsman

Oh, here we go with prices. No wonder she didn't buy the heron, $4200. Although some of the smaller ones are actually quite reasonable, maybe I will buy one. Even the woodcarvings have some more in my price range.

I'm not sure how they did the red, chemicals maybe?

I like the bronzes better than the carvings. The red is probably some kind of chemical patina, don't know much about that.

Re: The photo-realist as craftsman

I just picked up the Feb copy of Watercolor artist magazine. In it there's a piece where some jurors write about what wins them over when looking at a painting. One of the things one juror said reminded me of this thread. She said,

"A painting you can't forget is one that's more than just skillfully rendered"

Much more so than the massive Vulture or whatever it was that perched on the Antenna from time to time. I took pics of the doves, I'll have to find them now

For some reason, doves seem to like me as well. Last year, I had a pair make a nest in a hanging basket, quite literally right outside my door! I'm wondering if they'll come back again.
