I feel like a dunce, but I didn’t take a pic of this artist’s name, and for the life of me I couldn’t remember it. Thanks to that wetcanvas poster who shared it with me!! Cheng Chen-Wen’s quite famous, so I really ought to have known. This one was also very big (bigger than a standard full sheet, again), perhaps 4′ x 4′ or more. I was obviously drawn to these large pieces, as they were so impressive, but there were also quite small pieces as well.

Here’s a closeup of the eye. The literature said he was using some sort of traditional brush with tines (sort of like a comb??) for some of the work. You can see it here, when you get in close. Of course, this area around the eye was still something like 8″ square, so quite big. He’s obviously building value with it. He did the same thing for some of the very fine hair curling at the back of her head, which you can see in the second pic (pardon the reflections!)

Then, just to show the astounding detail he accomplished, below is a small 6″ x 6″ closeup of her collar!! Crazy! Is it done just with some rough, textural brushwork? or some sort of very detailed stippling?? Considering the detail in the rest of the piece, I’m assuming it’s some sort of stippling or minute work, but I’m not sure.

I really liked this piece, but would never want to paint like this. It’s not me, but I can appreciate his skill. Wow!!!
