Photography: Manipulated, Digital, Color, Paint, Giclee on Paper.
The title and the work was inspired by William Bates who was an optometrist. He had some radical ideas about glasses and good eyesight.
The artwork is a combination of an actual painting, and another photograph. I like to experiment with my traditional paintings using digital brushes and manipulation. I combined the two together and experimented with light, shadow and color. Then I started to paint digitally.
