How realistic are your models? Photo challenge.

When I attempted water colour painting following the excellent Alwyn Crawshaw series of books I quickly developed a bad habit. Following the project exercises I made quick progress and practiced techniques until I felt comfortable. But when I started to paint my own pictures I noticed I'd adopted a style which meant I was painting a painting - rather than trying to create realism itself. This started to carry over into my model making too and can happen when I lack the confidence to attempt to replicate "life" and instead model models as it were.

With paintings of course, artistic licence and developing one's own style is to be encouraged (look at impressionism for example). But with the railway hobby I can't be as maverick as that can I?

Here I've gone the other way.

 

By blurring foreground and background it makes a real life view appear surprisingly model - like?

There's a thread for real things looking like a model here http://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/55259-when-the-real-thing-looks-like-a-model/page-30

Which one is my great great grandfather then?

Actually you have spelled it incorrectly.  It should be 'Exuperius', the word meaning, from the Latin, to greatly excel, which should be appilied to your modelling capabilities.  Its use as a name possibly relates back to an Exuperius who was Bishop of Toulouse in the early 5th century.

 

Ain't Google wonderful........................... :sungum:
