Photographs as Paintings
I like experimentation.
One day some time ago I was cutting through a small park in Falmouth and happened upon a scene of artists painting together, the model sitting in a small structure at the edge of a garden.
I asked if I could take photographs and was allowed.
When I had finished someone asked if he could see them some of them. It turns out they were from the Falmouth Artist's Guild and I said I will bring some by.
But I decided to do something different.
I applied a graphics program's "Sponge" filter to slightly modify the image — not too unlike a painting — and I printed it on 8 x 10 photo paper and covered it in gloss and mounted it as a painting, and I dropped it of at the Guild the next day (the man who had given me his name was not there so I never got any feedback from them).
This was the first "Photo Painting" I did.
