TESTING

Today I wanted to experiment with painting right onto an old photo. It was difficult to do emotionally because it meant that it is no longer that photograph. Technically it was also challenging. It is kodak paper, so I thought it could stand being wet, but it curled as I was painting it, absorbing water a lot differently than the photo paper for the printer and it is less receptive to layering too.

One thing that I do when scanning and using old photos is also crop them in a certain way. Using the whole photo leaves you open to the eye of the photographer. Which in this case I quite like.
