Realistic Artwork

Original Realistic Art Drawing Reproductions by Dr. Dan Holt

"Realistic Art" Google says that the characteristics of the realism movement are: "...the accurate, detailed, unembellished depiction of nature or of contemporary life. Realism rejects imaginative idealization in favor of a close observation of outward appearances. The main goal of realism is to depict the positives and negatives of everyday life..." I guess that's the reason that I don't do much in the way of Realism...I need to add some fantasy.

Can’t just anybody become a fantasy artist?

Yes, but good art evokes an emotional response...whether that is positive or negative is not the point. The point is that it brings forth an emotional feeling in the person viewing it. 

The Takeaway

Whether you are interested in Beardsley, Dali, or Escher, you’ll find Dan’s art is a breath of fresh air. You’ll be pleasantly surprised about how simple lines can create a universe inhabited by beautiful beasts and creatures from a world of fantasy that he slowly unlocks through his masterly skills at pencil drawing and painting with watercolors or acrylic paints.
