White is not always white

As hard as I try to explain it, when you are drawing or painting something that is supposed to be white, it is not always white in the image.  You still have to show the curves and the shadows with other colors than white.  I am hoping that this artist will help to show you what I am talking about.

I have happened to stumble across the Irish artist, Vincent Keeling.  Mr. Keeling has been trained in classic oil painting techniques which he has then applied to close ups of roses.  He is creating these big, beautiful, and realistic paintings of roses, cities and people.  I highly recommend you checking him out.

So what do you think of his style?  Would you like to send him an image and have him paint it?  What type of images would you paint if you had his talent?

What a beautiful dream

I happened to run across the computer generated paintings or Cyril Rolando from France.  It turns out he started playing with some simple computer programs before he started working with Photoshop.  He has since turned his hobby of playing into some incredibly beautiful works that look like paintings, but have all been made on a computer.

What do you think?  Do you believe that this is just a hobby for him?  Do you know what type of art that he is creating?  I'll give extra credit if you can tell me the genre that he is inspired by.
