Images without reference?
Is it possible to make an abstract, non-representational, painting with three dimensional images? The question is there and I am trying to answer it. I want my art to have light and form and be intelligently emotive.
My struggles with my new camera and reproduction continue in the experimental phase. The lighting on yesterday's three drawings is obviously uneven. I am experimenting with a polarization filter and white balance techniques. The reproduction's of yesterday's drawings don't look right to me. The painting's reproduction is closer to reality. The new camera has twice an many pixels as the previous one. Thus the subtlety of reproductions are enhanced. This allows me to see more details in the photos, thus making me work harder to reproduce well.
