WHAT OWNERS ARE SAYING
On the surface, these images looked like nostalgic photographs. Dig deeper and you see their brilliance, the attention to detail, the careful way Doug crafted every stroke. Dig even deeper and you see Doug’s brilliance, the attention to the smallest detail, be it the reflection on a Coke bottle, or the pencil eraser marks on a New York Times magazine. Fantastic buy – usually you’d have to spend an arm and a leg for such detailed piece of art. The amount of painstaking work that went in to capturing the essence of these comic greats is astounding.Michael P Harvey Company
I have always been a photorealism art fan and when I saw Doug Bloodworth’s paintings of candies and comics, I had to have a piece. The paintings are amazing and he signed the backs for me and made them all the more special. Ordering was effortless. I was contacted about the progress of my order and received a tracking number the next day. When they arrived it was packaged very carefully to prevent damage. Doug Bloodworth is a fantastic artist. I am impressed by his work and will be purchasing more work from him. If your a fan of art, you need these paintings. I’ve become a true fan of photorealism. They come in various sizes to fit your decor and space limitations. All I can say is “Amazing”.Stew Williams Company
When I bought Doug Bloodworth’s photorealism art, I was hoping it would be as wonderful as it looked online. It was not. It was even better!! I believe he was able to do real life comics justice and he even signed the back to me with my request. Love it! Love that Doug Bloodworth shared his talent with us, and I know you will love your photorealism art as well. Enjoy!!Jean H Company

What is Photorealism?
Fine Art should create a unique experience.
Photorealism is a genre of art in which a painting is so skillfully done that from ten or twenty feet away, the viewer assumes that they are seeing a photograph.
Only when one stands a few inches from the artwork does one realize that it is a painting, not a photograph.
There’s something about photorealism. You walk into a room and see a Richard Estes street scene or a Roberto Bernardi candy bowl and you say, “Beautiful photo”. But as you get closer to the piece, you realize that it’s actually an oil painting and you exclaim “Wow! I cannot believe it. Look at the shadows. Look at the exhaust coming out of the car. Look at the depth of field. It’s absolutely amazing”.
One never tires of having these in one’s home. These pieces provide enjoyment for years.
