Photo Realism

Photorealism, sometimes called Super-Realism, emerged in the United Stated in the late 1960s. The most stringent criterion of Photorealism mandated that a photograph be used to collect the information from which the painting would be realized. Just as a camera focuses non-objectively on minute details, the artist worked in exacting detail to produce a totally inclusive composition. The Abstract Expressionists and Minimalists had become formidable, creating art that was independent of any discernable reliance on real-world imagery. By and large, the Photorealists aimed to reinvigorate the value of an image, which had experienced a steady decline in the art world since the advent of photography. The banality of composition and subject stems from the work of Pop artists, who were called new realists. The link between these two movements was the focus on everyday objects and scenes, instead of compositions that arose from academic painting. Trademark components of Photorealistic paintings include the interaction of light with reflective surfaces, and the precision of geometric elements. Photorealism has endured into the 21st century, and technological and photographic advancements have allowed artists to further push the limits of the style.

As a cartoonist, I've found only the 100 nib to be one that acts like a brush in that it gives me the thick and thin line that I desire, and a very thin line as well. It handles well and is very flexible.

Working with Pebeo products is so much fun and I love the different affects that can be achieved by using Prisme, Vitrail and glitter together. Cons: Some colors in the Pebeo Prisme line became thick and gooey after 4 to 6 months of storage. I attempted to thin the paint with paint thinner but it was still too thick. I wrote the Pebeo Customer Service Department and have yet to hear from them (it's been approximately one week now). Regardless, when I want to create something unique I will continue to use them.

I agree with Debbie P. This paint looks terrible on glass. Streaks, different colors. I'm attempting to paint a State Seal on stained glass to make a badge for my son and at the rate it's going it will be 2 years before it's painted good enough to use. Everything she said about the brush stroked and overlapping areas is true for me. Not a happy camper with this product.
