This Chuck Close painting of Brad Pitt blows me away. The way he uses shades of gray to mimic skin tone is fantastic. I'm also impressed with the size of this painting and the amount of time and effort it takes to paint anything to this scale, let alone a spitting image. I also enjoy how well Chuck puts the focus on and takes the focus off other areas. From experience, I find it very difficult to make a painting out of focus.
