More Than Just a Pretty Face

In the past, I only ever took photos of my paintings after they were complete. It wasn't until I was painting for my exhibition earlier this year that I started to photograph the stages of a painting.

I receive many comments from people regarding the layering of my work and I figured photographing the stages of a painting would not only be a good way of documenting the process involved in creating each piece, it would also be interesting for clients and viewers of my work, and of course to me.

Many people that have viewed these photographic stages have been quite surprised by the work involved in creating what looks like a rather simple image, proving them to be more than just a pretty face on canvas.

I've always been amazed by the detail in your work Simone.
I cannot imagine the hours of work each piece takes to create, but the end result is definitely worth it.
