Incredible & Hyper Realistic Oil Paintings by Linnea Strid

While looking at some online art galleries, I came across the incredibly well done, beautiful and astonishingly realistic oil paintings of the Swedish artist Linnea Strid displayed at Think Space Art Gallery.

Linnea Strid has an impressive talent in portraying water in a realistic way that truly captures the essence of water and makes each droplet almost jumps out of frame toward the viewer. The realism of the portrayed water in Linnea's paintings grasps one's attention and forces the observer to re-examine the details of the painting in an effort to determine whether the displayed work of art is a rendered photograph or an oil painting.
