Thanks to digital, we now live in a picture perfect world. Perfectly polished pixels that only a computer could make and love; but we are not algorithmic machines – perfect is boring. I’ve always been a big fan of the imperfections of painting. The yellowing varnish, the hairline cracks, and the tarnish of time all add to the art and aesthetic of the painting. I originally shot the above images on my DSLR. They looked good enough – but lacked intrigue. A bit too picture postcard. I uploaded them to my iPhone and applied textures using photo apps to give them a more ‘painterly’ personality. Hope you like the series of images – and should you like one of the images enough to want a pristine print on your wall, please write to me at email@example.com and we’ll chat about print sizes, prices and shipping arrangements. Thank you for your visit.
