The subtleties are what is special. That and my father would adore it.
Can’t. Stop. Staring. At. It. One of the challenges I’ve yet to overcome is how best to use the lack of color, as Valdez has managed to do here masterfully, to portray reflection, light, etc.
After doing some digging around I can only assume this is a self-portrait. The simplicity of this work is what grabs me – the parts that would have been boring or confusing have been washed away by adding just a bit of color. Awesome.
I quite simply could have featured every single one of Evi’s, or Haunted Tower on Deviant Art, works but I had to pick one. So I chose Mill.
This portrait of Matchbox 20 is simply stunning. Ping stretches the detail from the foreground to far into the background slowly fading into nothing at all.
As the Gulf oil spill has been seemingly cut off I figured I’d find a nice piece of art that forces us to remember that the long-term effects of this tragedy are far, far from over.
Molly’s work is really interesting to me in that she seems to focus on the hardest areas (for me at least) and allows the rest to fade away around the edges.
Love at first sight.
The parts that should be detailed out are and the parts that shouldn’t aren’t. For me that is a really hard target to strike but Terry has done that here masterfully.
Look carefully for the texture. That’s what makes this one great.
