Painting with Light

There is a genre of painting called photorealism or even hyperrealism, where a painter tries to make a painting look like a photograph. 

I tend to take photographs that are trying to look like a painting… Most of my work has a graphic element if not fully abstract imagery. The image in this post was taken a few years ago at Esquimalt Lagoon. When I saw the location, a pool reflecting people walking along the path, I knew what I wanted. When the dog appeared, it completed the composition. I did some Photoshop magic and I quite like the image. All I need to do now is print it and sell it….
