I find it fascinating to watch Martin creating a physical picture, with paint on canvas or paper. But when he works digitally, it’s not that easy to make out what he’s doing ~ so, apart from peeking over his shoulder now and then, I usually wait until he’s finished. When he’d explored the Motor Head concept to his complete satisfaction, he ran a sideshow of the progressive stages. As we watched, with growing amusement, the ‘head’ appeared to come to life! Anyone of a nervous disposition might find that scary ~ but it inspired my man to create this digital painting:
Printed out on box canvas and on a T-shirt, this image has the ‘Marmite Factor’ ~ you love it….or you hate it! Either way, you have to admire The Artist’s meticulous attention to detail.
