July 13 2011

Mixing painting with photography. Two media- one smudgy oil painting, one recent light painting portrait. How to combine the two?
A slide projector casts a color slide of the oil paining on a white wall, as Zena poses in front. Then, after an appropriate time, the projector is turned off and light painting is used to sketch her in . The result blends landscape, viewer, observer.

  1. I love it, Steve! Great light, texture & composition. The technique is also very interesting. I should try it some day.
