Photo-realistic paintings of women in nature by Yigal Ozeri

Tel Aviv-born, New York-based painter Yigal Ozeri has produced these incredibly realistic paintings of women lying in beautiful landscapes that make you wonder if they are in fact photographs.

Trust me, they are not. These are photo-realistic paintings of women surrounded by nature, that capture every tiny detail, from flyaway hairs on the subject's head to the ripples of water surrounding her.

But how does he do it? Each piece is the result of multiple stages of the artist's process, which starts with a photo session to capture his beautiful subjects. From there, he edits his work digitally to produce a more cinematic image, which he then replicates by hand with a brush.
