I see so many unfinished artworks. Abandoned before their full potential is realised. I must admit, I do it myself too. I usually abandon them when the post-processing required to fix them becomes a task beyond about five minutes. There have been exceptions.
I have forgotten how to use Photoshop.
Luckily, most only need a minor adjustment or two and reprinting.
Resolving your artwork means finishing it. Figuring out how to make it work the way you wish. Taking it to its conclusion.
Here is a common list of things that may need addressing in your quest to resolve your work:
- white and black points
- printing problems
- centre of intellectual interest not matching that of visual attention
- colour casts
There must be many more.
Three Pink Flamingos in Namibia. I will be there in a few weeks and can’t wait. Am very excited to be mixing wildlife and landscapes together in one trip. Photograph and text copyright © Len Metcalf 2018
