I Create Realistic Paintings That Are So Detailed, They Look Like Real Photographs
I am an experienced artist and teacher, my name is Dru Blair, and I use the technique of airbrushing to create these super-realistic paintings, often of people you may recognize. It takes hours of dedicated hard work to make my paintings come to life, by adding every minuscule detail to achieve a photo-like effect.
Here are some of my paintings that I wish to share with you at Bright Side, for you to see for yourself the wonder of airbrush painting.
