Tsitoghdyzan with his painting “Mirror”

Hey everyone! I recently found a really amazing painter that I wanted to write about and share with you guys. When it comes to painting I have gained a new found appreciation for painters so this guy kind of blew my mind. I had a painting class this past semester and it took me the majority of the semester to get my one Georgia O’Keeffe painting done.It was definitely a struggle for me but I’ll talk about that in another post. What I’m getting at is that painting can be really hard, especially if you are trying to paint something realistically. It really has made me realize and appreciate how hard they work to create these amazing paintings.

The paintings Tigran Tsitoghdzyan create look more like photographs rather than paintings. When I first saw them I thought ‘Wow, those photos are beautiful’. Imagine my shock when I found out they were paintings. My favorite by far is “Mirror”, something about it really appeals to me. Maybe its the soft expression of the face or the hair but something keeps me coming back to this one. The details and texture within this painting is amazing, its just so well done. I thought these were so beautiful and I wanted to share them! I hope you guys enjoyed this post, I’ll include a link to more pictures down below!

Let’s Be Realistic

Hi Everyone,I wanted to share something I saw on the front page of yahoo today that I think is really amazing. A slideshow was featured showing the drawings of artist Dirk Dzimirsky. The thing is these drawings don’t look like drawings at all, in fact I thought I was looking at a photograph. It always amazes me to see artwork like this, it’s just so realistic and doesn’t resemble a drawing at all. I’ll admit it, I’m not that great at drawing, in my opinion.

I especially have a hard time with portraits and faces, or really anything that involves a human being. Its something that I would really like to work on and get better at, so to see work like this really inspires me to practice more. After looking at the yahoo slide show I headed over to his website to check out some of his stuff. I found out not only does he do these drawings but he also teaches classes! How cool would it be to take one of those? Anyway his art is amazing, I especially like piece called Breath.

The hair is really beautifully done and I just love how the water looks against the skin. I think Black Sun really shows off the artist’s skills as well. The wrinkles and texture of the skin are really well done here. Hopefully you guys find this as inspiring as I do. You can check out the links below to see more if you want, see you next time!
