now a days not many get to study in Florence at the age of 16...
this is Adam Miller
born in oregon he has gotten an extensive training of classical paining techinques studying renaissaince artwork. he uses a combination of old and new subjects, and is quite known for his figure painting. i personaly admire the way he paints skin, its transparency, its shadows and the emotion that hes is able to show. i think is a great realist.
