When you combine the human body and a little paint, you can come up with some pretty extraordinary creations, which artist Annie Ralli has mastered. Ralli created a series of incredibly detailed hand paintings, which were later photographed into different scenes. Her paintings are ultra-realistic, and once photographed by Ray Massey, blend perfectly with their environment.

Ralli did several pieces, including two soccer players going after a ball, a split banana, a jar of writing/drawing tools, a hand holding an ink pen, a castle and two Olympic runners. Each hand painting is incredibly intricate and would most certainly take Ralli at least a few hours to create.

Massey does a great job of bringing Ralli's artwork to life in his photographs. This is definitely a series worth looking at.
