    • Interesting comment. As an artist as well as a photographer lately I have been dealing with the concept of ‘pixels vs. paint’. My latest paintings are heavily textured in ‘reality’ (as opposed to ‘visually textured’) but I realize that they have been influenced by what I’m seeing in photos like these ones.
