Unbelievably Photorealistic Paintings of an Elegant Bride

Though this image of an elegant, swan-like bride clutching with one arm to the table behind her as her flowing gown drapes on the wood paneled floor below may seem like photograph of refined taste, it is actually a painting by artist Rob Hefferan. The photorealistic work of the English painter is astounding both in its realism and the intricate details captured in each frame.

The artist's latest works take on the sophisticated beauty of a bride and her groom posing throughout an extravagant mansion that rivals the opulence of Versailles. Hefferan captures every minute wrinkle in the fabric of her dress, the intricate details of the ornate decor, and the varied textures and reflective surfaces throughout the space. Browsing through his work, one is left having to constantly remind themselves that these are not photographs.
