Chuck Close. Leslie/Watercolor. 1972. 
Water color on paper canvas.

When I first looked at this painting, I thought it was a photograph. It looks like it was taken from a camera, with a soft focus. The detail of the woman’s face is amazing, the shadows, her hair, her eyelashes, the lines on her lips are so precise. I was amazed to find that it is actually a watercolor painting.
