Amazingly Real and Beautiful Paintings of Women

This painter is Steve Hanks and I think he has done an amazing job in capturing the spirit and essence of these women in the paintings. Hope you guys can appreciate it with me, anyone?

    BeamS… there is still people that work on real canvas… Belive it or not, painters do amazing things that can not be reproduced using Photoshop :-)

    Hey, everyone – he’s a watercolorist – he works from photos that he takes. Images are pretty big – usually 30 by 40 inches and are very well done – I’ve seen a few in person years ago.

    No photoshop, not on canvas… they are very impressive when seen in person at actual size – they look like paintings – here, they look a little like photos because they are reduced in size.

    PS Watercolor is not very forgiving – it’s hard to correct any mistakes

    ……no, words to give compliments…….
    ….very very beautiful.

    Lovely paintings. Perfectly proportioned girls – notice especially the quality of the skin tone and how well he does feet and hands. Also the settings – reflections in water are remarkably accomplished, esp in watercolour which is unforgiving of mistakes.

    I like the fact that his style varies – some look very modern, some ’30s, some even rather C19th. Compare his girls with those done by classical artists John William Waterhouse and John Singer Sargent – I think these compare very favourably.

    I expect his work will be a good investment.

    I wanna use a couple of these for illustrations in a poem I’m writing but there’s probably a copyright. How beautiful!

    Amazing talent,..i know that these are not Real paintings, i think it`s a photograph that is processed to
    look like a real paintings….am i correct?

    • Pony November 3, 2011 at 6:06 pm #

      i believe so from the research and write ups i saw…very cool work either way

  21. shweta December 31, 2011 at 4:47 am #

    very nice

    Fantastically painted.watercolour is so unforgiving,lovely girls helps but backgrounds are beautifully painted as well and could be paintings on their own.Lovely painted clothes and love the slightly luminous see through look.If I wasn’t a poor struggling water colourist myself ,i would definitely invest in some of his art.all the best.

    If these paintings are originally done by artist, that is excellent, pictures are too realistic light and shades are beautiful.
