For Your Eyes Only!
A portrait of Tica, a painting by Dru Blair
It's called Photorealism, To the human eye it is a photograph, but to Dru Blair, it is his exercise for a painting workshop in which he taught in 2005. Unbelievable! Dru is an aviation artist whose realistic paintings dramatically portray subjects that salute Man's greatest technological triumphs. His realistic aircraft paintings are often mistaken for airplane photos. While Dru's helicopter and airplane paintings focus primarily on high technology aviation and military aircraft, he has also been selected to portray many Star Trek novel covers, as well as such diverse subjects as the well known Budweiser Bullfrogs, and numerous magazine covers.
A Step by step process of the project.
