Polaroid Studies

Again, another idea that I am exploring. I am not a good photographer but the idea that taking images with a Polaroid adds an element of loss of control. I am not suggesting that amateurs do not have control [I believe the opposite is true more often] but there is certainly an element of informal training, learning by You Tube or from an off the shelf magazine.

I am keen to explore making paintings that are of something that has not perhaps worked as planned. i am also not sure if, at this point it is the real reason but i will engage with making a number of small painting studies from polaroids. having done a few more, i hope to get a better understanding of my purpose. For now, here you can see one such example.
