Project four of five – one of my personal favourites out of my everyday details picture collection. I was actually wondering when I sent this to my painter friend whether it was mean, because if I had to turn this photo into a painting I would very likely give up right away. My original seems pretty messy to me, even though it was kind of an arranged mess in the photograph.
When I received the painted version, I was once again very astonished as to how accurate it all seems even though it’s not a detailed 1:1 depiction of the single photographs within the photograph.
The whole painting was done without a single brush stroke – I was even more in awe when I heard that. The background was done with a sponge, and the single photographs were made by pushing the paint with a piece of wood.
