When I first saw the work of Michael Sydney Moore I thought he was a photographer. After some research I realized I was wrong. The realism of his oil paintings is impressive but the fact that he already masters the technique at the age of 23 is completely mind-blowing.

The first image is a stock photo, not a painting. http://www.shutterstock.com/pic-62671255/s…

The photo of the painting in progress isn't nearly as detailed and the colors are different.

If the artist is claiming that first image is his final painting, he's full of it. That image is everywhere on the web. http://www.seniorsguideonline.com/helpful-inform…
