I recently commenced painting a large digital painting. I'm using Photohshop for the project and I've become acutely aware of the textures and brush marks that are developing and their distinctily digital look. I'm a fan of 'natural' textures and initially worked to eliminate these relatively mechanical ones but this in turn is making the painting look over worked and lifeless.
The more I think about it the more I believe I should actively embrace these digital textures and accept they are the natural result of the process. I was wondering what others thought about textures that are obviously digital in origin within paintings. Are they accepted by viewers as an enriching element in the same way traditional brush marks often are?
