Not long ago I was musing about digital and traditional art, about them being two sides of the same coin, two tools serving the same goal.
This weekend I've been making a back-up of some image files from last year and came by a good example of using traditional mediums to do what's usually a digital task.
See this portrait? Last summer I was lucky enough to work for a man who wanted to take an old and damaged photo of his mother when she was a baby, reprint it and use it as a gift.
Anyone would have asked for a clean up in Photoshop or similar.
Instead, this man chose to commission the revamp of the photo as a watercolour painting. How amazing is that?!
Each time I fall in the digital/traditional debate I end up thinking the same, the tools are not important, just make meaningful art.
