Modern Art

By SlowSong
Or should that be Technical Art? The new way of doing things, although I can't see that it's in any way fulfilling.

I like the fact that the man's clothing is as colourful as the screen, and the angle you chose, showing the full screen and the man concentrating on his painting.

I imagine if you got good at it, it would be the same as using pencil crayons.

You've recently built up an interesting set of images of the Tate and it's community.

Seems to be an electronic drawing and painting board. Nicely taken interesting shot.

That is a strange concept, but I don't know why I'm surprised.

Nicely observed Chris - this one's about color for me, especially the colors of his cap, screen and the color reflection through the lens of his glasses. I do agree though, cannot see what's fulfilling about this. And lol to Mick's comment Smile

I gotta say that what he's created is a lot more interesting than a red dot painted in the corner of a white canvas - which I've seen pass off as 'art'!

This is definitely not the thing for me, though. I'd much rather try my hand at watercolour pencils, charcoal pencils, etc.

Gorgeous colour you've captured in the whole scene, Chris. And I just love how the blue which has swum into his glasses.

Technology again, although I prefer the paintbrush and water. Excellent composition Chris.

I suppose it prevents getting the hands messed up with paint! Grin Great candid though, Chris Smile
