Illustration Friday - Blur


we recently went to Chicago mainly to see the recently completed Contemporary Gallery part of the Art Institute Of Chicago. Like the rest of the museum it was wonderful, one of the best art museums I've seen. There was a room of works by Gerhard Richter including some of his blurred out of focus paintings based on black and white photos. This is a quick pen and brush portrait of Richter touched up in Gimp with the Gaussian Blur filter

I would like to see this one without the "blur" filter. I miss the texture and details.

thanks I am glad my video tutorials are very helpful. I have lots more in the making and I am also thinking about creating a website dedicated to the subject. Again, thanks everyone for your support, questions and comments
