A photorealist drawing

Photorealism is a style of painting or drawing. The picture is done with a lot of detail to make it look exactly like a photograph. The subjects pictured were often boring, without any special interest.[1] Photorealism developed as an art style in the 1960's and 1970's. Two famous photorealist artists are Richard Estes and Chuck Close.[1]
