how would you translate : " this paintings are often out of life scale"
This is an art article, talks about Photorealism, and says that the "paintings are out of life scale"
"Estas pinturas a menudo no están a escala.
These paintings are often not to scale. (not life size)
I think it translates "Estos cuadros a menudo están fuera de la escala de la vida". (This paintings are often out of life scale).
