These experiments were fuelled from the practice of the artworks produced by Carl Larsson and Jean Paul Hugues collection of 18th century vintage home interior studies.
In these experiments of my Grandma Character (shown below) I explored the Photoshop technique with images that contained more information that had more elements of drawn textures and shading. These results will be thought of and carried into the future approach to my visual image making. I have contemplated the muting of the ‘filling in’ colour aspect and making the line work the strongest telling feature of the work using layers in Photoshop to explore this. Remebering my tutors words of advice to not overcook the my craft.
Studies of Grandma Character Development
Observational Study of Living Room
I really like how the process of using the magic wand tool on Photoshop creates surprises and accidents to play with. The circular scope of shading that is shown below in my observational study of my family living room was interestingly the result of the flash photography of the original artwork that would have not been present if the original artwork had been scanned. I also feel the attraction to this process of transferring my original artworks is due the fact that the professional rules are typically adviced to the correct process of scanning artwork to capture the better result. However being creative I like to find alternative routes and enjoy the feeling of challenging rules and inviting new perspectives established in the thoughts of my visual image production.
