Very impressive: Evgeny Lushpin painted Rothenburg ob der Tauber, Germany.
View attachment 12523
Almost like a photograph. Evgeny Lushpin is indeed a skilled contemporaty hiperrealistic artist. Check out his gallery

some of his paintings that imho are worth distinctive mention:
1) Still life with phaistos disk (2012)


2) Dewar's Vessel Still Life (2009)


3) Winter Icon (2016)
