Well I feel a bit of a fraud really as I have done very little except post the original photograph and then put this post together. You see following my post “Last of the Leaves“, Jots from a small apartment asked if she could have a go at making a painting of the same image. I was flattered to say the least and gladly agreed, but when it came to posting she asked if I would do the honour and put it up on my blog. So here I give you Jots’ painting, followed by a small image of my original photo.
The original photograph:
I have seen pictures done by ‘photo-realist painters’ which I find incredible, but ultimately think what is the point of painting something in such replica detail that it could be a photograph? I don’t really get it, but can admire the skill. So back to Jots painting, I am pleased to say it is full of artistic impression and I love that, I wish I could do similar. So I hope Jots does re-blog this on her own site to take hold of the credit she deserves and why not pop over to her site and tell Jots what you think.
More than creating a great image, Jots is full of good banter too, so hit the website jots from a small apartment.
I’d also be interested to see what other photographers feel about their work being painted? Or does anyone else have opinions on Photo-Realism?
Have a great weekend,
MM 🍀 and Jots
