Realism is one of the hardest things to master in painting. It may seem easier than creating something fantastical or out of this world, but if you make just one mistake in realistic painting, everything will seem off.

Derek Mederos has mastered the art of realism very well. His work has a lot of detail and it’s obvious he puts a lot of time and effort into each piece.

Derek created this interesting series of paintings “wrapped” in bubble wrap. It creates an interesting optical illusion.

What do you think of these paintings? Is the bubble wrap a good idea? Tell us in the comments!
