But my today’s story is dedicated to the artist, whose stunning paintings are super realistic.

When you look for the first time at the works of Damian Loeb, you may think that these are photos, beautiful and of good quality, but nevertheless photos. And you will be wrong. Damian Loeb is a self-taught artist, who creates amazing hyperrealistic oil paintings. The last ones demonstrate people the incredibly detailed landscapes on Earth, various cloud formations and the vastness of the cosmos with its planets, stars and other celestial objects. But how does Damian recreate such realistic landscapes and celestial bodies on his paintings? To do it, the American-based artist uses a high-tech gadgetry and has to take lots of photos. Although it may seem strange, but Damian paints not exactly what he previously photographed. He spent many months in his studio, working with these photos, changing the contrast light, exposure, shadow or other things on them. When this stage of work is finished, he starts creating his oil paintings, supplementing them with some additional photos from the well-known Hubble Space Telescope.

The main goal of the painter is an astronomical accuracy and he really achieves it, spending many months replicating the smallest patterns among the stars as well as checking and rechecking all the photos. You may only look at one of his latest paintings series – “(Sol).d”- to make sure in it. All extraterrestrial landscapes as well as earth-bound views depicted on the paintings of this series look incredibly realistic and reliable. When you look at “Cygnus” or “The Great Rift” canvasses, you have a strong feeling that you see them in a telescope. The same feeling of hyperrealism follows you when you draw your attention to “Sol”, “Fulwell” or “Windsor” paintings.

As for me, it’s quite hard to paint such landscapes and celestial bodies in detail and make people believe that they look at not good photos, but super realistic canvasses. And what do you think?
