|Unforgettable, by bbrunophotography|
So today I realized how much I love using textures in my art work. I guess you might say that I am not a purist when it comes to photography. I play around with photos like a kid with a new set of Playdough, tweaking light and shadow just a bit, upping the contrast, and discovering how certain images almost beg for drama.
Enter digital layering and textures.
The grungier the better.
Whether you're a big fan of textured art or just like your images nice and simple, perhaps this week's Friday Showcase will encourage you to take a long look at this idea of taking art a step further.
I don't use texturing on every photo, because sometimes an image needs to be left as is. But turn me loose on a textures website and you could probably steal my purse, my chocolate, and my coffee grounds in the freezer before I'd even glance up.
The following six artists turned my head with their textured images.
Happy weekend, everyone!
