Amazing Photo-real Paintings from London Born Australia based Artist Robin Eley. Robin is a self taught Artist, his paintings are oil on Belgian Linen, you can find a description of his process here.
“The way I see it is that I have 3 opportunities to get my drawing correct: the initial drawing onto canvas, the underpainting and the final painting. As I move through these processes I am constantly reevaluating my drawing, making sure I maintain accuracy as I battle with other things such as colour and value.” Robin Eley on his process of his work
