More realistic isn’t necessarily more real

I jumped to the other end of the spectrum (all those HOT pinks I’ve been painting) and got out some greens.

This face is more realistic than the one in Broken:


However, the emotions aren’t as real. I feel something, deeply, when I look at Broken. This one doesn’t  make me feel as intensely, which is why I say that “More realistic isn’t necessarily more real.”


About CarolWiebe

Art entices, inspires, and delights me. Art is a vehicle for laughter, tears, wonder, enlightenment--taking me on a constant path of discovery. You can't say that about housework (except, perhaps, for the crying part).
