The Benbow Triptych by JanBoruta The Benbow Triptych by JanBoruta
Semestral work for my painting class at school. The goal was to create three paintings in various styles: realism or hyperrealism (obligatory) and two other of choice. My inspirations were: the art of Joseph Mallord William Turner and classic American comic book style. It wasn't necessary to have all three revolve around one idea, nonetheless it was my decision to base the series on the famous photograph of Royal Navy dreadnought battleships led by HMS Benbow of the Iron Duke class.

3x 90x70 cm (28"x36"), acrylic on canvas.

Any one of these paintings alone would be amazing, but the three of them together showing such different styles at such an amazing level of quality is breathtaking.

Holy carps! That hyperrealistic painting is amazing! Incredible job, man! The details just pop right out at ya! It's a bright sight better than the original photo, given you were able to put more detail into the canvas that the photo couldn't capture, but man, do you have a talent! WOW!

These all are very great, but most of all I like the second one - that red one. It has just perfect colors!

School, eh? That'd explain your slower update cycle.
