Photorealistic paintings were a careful representation of reality without the interpretation of artist, nowadays the realist paintings want to highlight particular traits of the subject using lights and shadows in addition to the care of details. It’s fair to say photorealism painting is today an incredible opportunity for a lots of artist to test new styles and techniques. Many photorealistic paintings are about everyday life-scenes, in this way the artist wants to stop and catch the instant giving the watcher a real concern.
