How the visual memory plays tricks!
Most artists have a highly developed visual memory. Well, I like to think that I have, anyway!
How wrong can you be!
I recently had a chance to see again this collage (above) that I made fifteen years ago
Not only had I forgotten that I ever made it but when I saw afresh its subtle browns and yellows I was genuinely surprised
The photo I had kept of it was far more red in hue and over the years I had come to assume that that was how it really was!
The same is somewhat true for this collage - also made some fifteen years ago
What I have been able to do with Photoshop is drag it back to what it really looked like
Mind you, what do I know anymore!!?
Finally, I am having fun re-coloring some of my earlier work. This black and white drawing featured elsewhere on this blog has now turned blue.
