REK continues to delve deeper in his journey towards a photo realistic approach in his new works. The colouration and impossibly fine details continue to mature reaching a new zenith in "The Scarlet Regina (Santina)". Set again against a stark white backdrop to draw focus entirely to the subject of this composition, elements of this piece such the beak, eye and wrinkled skin contain 5 separate layers of acrylic paint to create ultra-lifelike depth while the softness and interplay of light and shadow in Santina's feathers is truer to life than ever before.
