Artist creates incredible paintings that look like photographs

An artist has created a stunning set of aquatic portraits which look just like photographs.

At first glance, you could be forgiven for believing that these images look like an intimate set of snapshots caught by the photographer at exactly the right time.

However, these touching shower scenes were not captured by a camera - but amazingly painted by the hand of a New York artist.

Applying paintbrush to canvas, Alyssa Monks pays mind-boggling attention to detail to create them.

And the 31-year-old, who has insisted that she uses no tools in her paintings, has boasted that her creations look even more life-like than photographs.
