I began my life with a great passion for art. That passion allowed for a tremendous amount of personal expression that I am grateful for to this day. I came to a point in my life, still at a very young age, that I realized all of the most magnificent and famous artists had long since expired. Giving up the tools of creativity in hopes that I would be able to find a suitable profession that would allow me much more financial independence before death seemed the more suitable path to take. The regrets I have for not following my dreams makes me appreciate this artist’s creations a lot more. Granted, appreciation is amplified with a little jealousy mixed in.
Doug Bloodworth has been perfecting his art for many years and has earned the praise of being called one of the greatest photorealists of our generation. While looking at these photographs may not seem all that impressive at first, the realization that they are actually oil paintings will put things into perspective. I first glanced through these photos thinking that Doug Bloodworth was fairly skilled in his photoshopping techniques or 3D modeling techniques. I continued through the photos at hand, and thought, “Not bad!” When I finally realized that they are actually oil paintings, my mind was blown. The video I’ve attached at the end left me speechless at the amount of talent and skill that Doug Bloodworth truly possesses.
