Mind Blowing Hyper-Realistic Oil Paintings of Nature

 I have profound admiration for two things in life: art and nature, so when I came across this inspiring artist's work I was overjoyed to see how beautifully the two go together. At a glance, these paintings look more like photographs. This is especially evident in the first picture, depicted below.
 
Created by An Jung-hwan, this talented Korean painter is able to create impeccable detail in each of his paintings - he uses oil paint to bring out the rich and vibrant color of nature. Several of his artworks have been sold at auction for a hefty price. In 2009, one of his paintings fetched an impressive $15,810 price tag. But as you're about to see, they are certainly worth it. Take a look at his beautiful works of art:

To create art as detailed as this, one also requires great observation about how leaves are arranged on a tree.
