Yeah, I did it once in college (threw some paint for an art class:biggrin! Unfortunately for a lot of young artists they confuse crudeness with technique. Oh and I like the image too. At first I was doubtful about the cars in the background but somehow they add to the immediacy and "streetness" of the pic - no?Uh, ... What's for sale? Oh, the lost Pollacks!
I love this picture!
ps, I was recently told that all painters go through a 'thrown paint' stage.
Thanks Ed but the he is a she and a very good looking one at that! What attracted me to take this was the contradiction between her femininity and her clothes and the direct albeit stoic confidence of her posture!I've never seen any tossed paint that approaches his though.
Yeah, Ed I stepped on this one a bit - upped the contrast to darken the blacks and brighten the whites - h-m-m, almost sounds like a detergent commercial!:biggrin:By his I meant Pollock. :biggrin:
I like how b&w brought out the textures in her paintings.
Oh yeah, color would make this a completely different image.Very nice. B&W certainly the right choice for this shot.
