Phot Art is a process whereby the original photograph is carefully modified using digital manipulation to create unique and stunning painting style art. Adding digitally created brushstrokes to the photographic image produces a greater variation of color and texture thereby enhancing the original photograph to give you Photo Art.
For many of my images I keep the content and composition of the original photograph completely unaltered. If you start changing features within the photo (the reason why you took the photo in the first place) that magic of the moment could be lost. This style is called Photorealistic
Some of my art work falls under the category of surrealism or Photo manipulation. In this style quite believable scenes and situations are transformed into waking dreams or fantastical, hallucinatory scenarios. These uncanny, dreamlike results are often achieved by showing the familiar in an unexpected light, or by combining unrelated elements to create surprising and at times even humorous juxtapositions.
