These are not photographs, they are hyper realistic oil paintings by Christiane Vleugels. The artist is a photographer and painter. She takes pictures of environments, people, places and if there is an interesting composition, she sketches them by hand and converts them into oil painting on her canvas. All the years of commission work has set her on an unique oil painting track. Every new oil painting is a new experience and challenge which she enjoys. Her zeal for life is her unique strength which portrays beautifully on her oil paintings.
