A SKILLED REALITY



I have to admit that all of the art classes I've been taking are definitely making me more aware of everything around me.

I'll admit I was already paying attention to a lot, but one thing I wasn't doing was paying attention to other artists and their works. And not that I'm doing a great job, but at least I'm starting.

About a month ago it was open gallery week in Dallas, and I visited a bunch of them all in one afternoon that was highly rewarding.

Here's the pics of some of the works that were highly realistic. The skill level put my realistic works to shame. However, it greatly inspired me to develop my skills even if it's just for my own personal pleasure.

I was so absorbed in the works that I didn't pay attention to the names of the artists. However the galleries are all off of Oaklawn and Dragon street.



This work above was just so good that I had to post more than one picture about it. The colors are just so vibrant that I couldn't help but think of paint combinations so that I could replicate the colors.
