BEAUTY: Painting--Richard Estes

After I posted the nostalgic diner images of Pam Ingalls here, I was reminded of the works of painter Richard Estes whose incredible photorealist oil on canvas pieces often show diners...
I love how Ingalls' work is loose and Impressionistic and Estes' is so precise and tight.

Remember these are paintings, not photographs. In a way, Estes' work reminds me of Paper Moon Graphics which I posted about here.
