Re: Surface Texture
One thing that I have noticed in juust hanging around galleries is that peopel are drawn to texture in the surface of a painting, because with so many clever ways to print reproductions these days, they 'know' it is hand-painted... Though this isn't necisarily true...
I know many, many skilled painters who are frustrated when they try to convince someone that an original painting isnt a giclee simply because the surface ends up so smooth... I bought a painting at the Winter Park show this weekend- an acrylic- that is incredibly well done with layer after layer of glazing, and is smooth beyond beleif- The artist was grumbling about this very thing- most people passed it off as a print!!
I always welcome critiques and criticisms of my work! That's the only way to improve!
