One might see these works of art -- when compared to their photographic counterparts -- and assume these are Photoshop or Painter work-overs. And, they very well may be. These days, there is a proliferation of artists entering the market who specialize in converting photos to paintings or art. But these are quite different. They're painted from scratch using oil on canvas.
This portrait of a young girl by Arthur Brahinskiy, reveals the artist's deep study and influence from the works of the Dutch Masters* and painters like Claude Lorraine*, and Sandro Botticelli*. He takes rather ordinary starting images and transforms them into classic works of art.

landscapes encourage, and his female nude stir imagination.
