In the photographic series called Shared Intimacy, the Brazilian artist Marta Penter shows how to master the art technique of photo-realistic painting. Her series is extremely well-done, and conveys an impressive realism that will have audiences doubting if they’re looking at a photo album or painting.

Shared Intimacy illustrates with watercolors and oil on canvas the tranquility and deliciousness of spending time at the beach with family and friends. Large in size, painted in black and white, and with sporadic additions of color, Penter’s canvas exudes heat, happiness and emotion. Rich in detail and wonderful aesthetics, each piece is a celebration of life and wild sentiments; the artist’s background as a psychologist is undeniable. 

Marta Penter creates a series where friendship, innocent complicity and sensuality are accurately portrayed with every stroke.
