Artist: Rob Hefferan. At a glance Rob Hefferan’s latest work could be mistaken for high-fashion photographs of refined taste. His romantic images of a bride posing elegantly in a grand lavish house look so realistic, you’d never guess they were paintings. The painter, 44, from Cheshire, is heavily influenced by grand masters of the Pre-Raphaelite movement. His photorealistic work is astounding both in its realism and the intricate details captured in each frame.
