Recommended Artist: Denny Bond

  Apart from his hyper-realistic Art, Denny Bond also does caricatures, and illustrations. He is currently living in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, and graduated from Kutztown University with a Bachelor of Fine Art in communications. He is currently exhibiting in galleries and museums throughout the United States, and his paintings have been featured in Watercolor Artist, February 2008 and in American Artist, June 2007.

 His website is simple to navigate and has an awesome layout. (I'm a sucker for good design.) So, if you're interested to know more about him, click on the link at the end of this post. Here, are some of his Art.

 If you were to ask me, I feel the first painting is the best, out of these three. Because the lights and shadows are very well planned, with a harmonious palette, and also because he used shadows to tell a story, as opposed to light. They are all, still, brilliant works.

A quote from his website:
   " I thoroughly enjoy the challenge of variation. Creating paintings in a series using a common theme allows me to focus on a particular subject matter of interest, but changing that focus for the next series is absolutely necessary to retain interest. I approach each painting with the thought of wanting to return to review it again at a later date. If I can capture that interest within myself, the content and execution of the painting is successful. Using my illustration background, I search for concept, composition, and detail in a representational style of painting that is predictable, but a choice of subject matter that is not."
