An example when photography looks like its made in the etching technique




Etching

Etching is a method of making prints from a metal plate, usually copper or zinc, which has been bitten with acid. The plate is first coated with an acid-resistant substance (etching ground or varnish) through which the design is drawn with a sharp tool (burin or other). The acid eats the plate through the exposed lines; the more time the plate is left in the acid, the coarser the lines. When the plate is inked and its surface rubbed clean, and it is covered with paper and passed under a cylindrical press, the ink captured in the lines is transferred to the paper.
The first etching on record was that of the Swiss artist, Urs Graf, who printed from iron plates. Albrecht Dürer, though a consummate engraver, made only five etchings, and never really dominated the technique. That was left to later artists like the Italian Parmigianino and, of course, Rembrandt, perhaps the greatest etcher of all time... Later adepts of acid etching were Tiepolo and Canaletto in Italy and, of course, Francisco Goya in Spain. The 20th century saw important bodies of work by Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Marc Chagall and Georges Rouault.

Leonardo Da Vinci's lost master piece



Image which is considered one of the best Leonardo works, which are thought to bedestroyed in a fire in the 16th century met with suspicion by scientists. The latest findings give no doubt that this work is hidden behind a hidden wall by another painter. So far studies have shown the same pigment that Leonardo used when painting the very famous masterpiece Mona Lisa

Darth Maul painting




I've found this painting on the internet and truly I am amazed from the artist who played with the colors. Knowing that Darth Maul's skin is all black and red, I assume that this was quite an experiment
