I think that I was somewhat successful in capturing the themes and style of the work. It’s somewhat ironic that Close painstakingly recreated every detail of photographs while I simply used a computer to emulate those effects, but the end creation captures the overall effect that I was hoping to achieve. I also wasn’t able to capture his level of detail because I had to scale the portrait up, and computers can only do so well in inferring detail where there is none. I’ve come to appreciate the difference in effort and process between physically and digitally creating a piece of art. I’ve also realized that trying to emulate someone else’s style is harder than it seems on the surface, but from putting forth the effort, I’ve gained skills that I could put into my own art. If I could do anything different for this piece of art, I’d use a better camera to be able to achieve a higher level of detail.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
