I’m actually painting the icons and program that is showing on my monitor.
Initially when I was taking the photos for this painting I was thinking that I should just keep the monitor black. It would be too difficult to paint all the tiny little details that exist on a computer screen. But, I recognized that I was running away from a challenge and also I would rather have a more authentic scene rather than something too contrived.
It’s going to take another session to finish the details on the monitor but I’m happy to say that painting the program wasn’t as hard as I thought. There are just a lot of little tiny details that I have to make sure get in the correct place.
