What do you think of the watercolors below by Ralph Goings?  He is an American Photorealist painter.  Yes.  It's a painting!

  2. This is insane, i remember doing the watercolor painting last year and mine looked nothing close to realistic. It's really cool how hes able to control the watercolor into detailed paintings. - emmie cate

    I think it's really interesting how he makes the watercolors look so real. Usually they look messy and abstract

  4. The fact that these are watercolor paintings amazes me because it looks so realistic! It's so cool how the artists in these paintings are able to create different shadows and shading on the images to make them have a real look to it

  7. Goings' work is so realistic that I thought they were photographs at first glance. I think it is so cool how he uses water colors to paint glass and other transparent objects.
