Is it a photograph? processing? picture?UrbanOutlines are art works based on photographs that I shoot using my Nikon D80 camera. After selecting the photo I want to work on, using a digital pen I draw the outlines of the picture, shutter after shutter, wall after wall, structure after structure. The texture and lighting of the photographed picture are used to color the picture.
Have you thought of using other colors except black and white?Actually the works are not in black and white. They incorporate extremely delicate touches of a brown and greenish tint, which gives them a sense of warmth that is usually lacking in black and white pictures.
Certain computer screens might blur these additional colors and display a picture which is essentially in shades of black and white. Therefore, a better impression of a picture's real shades can be seen in photos displayed in the gallery or other photos that appear beside each picture.
Can I know more about this artwork?A link to some informative text appears beneath each picture. Pressing the link will open a short paragraph with information about the street, the person after whom the street is named, unique structures that appear in the picture and the architects that designed them.
What is the proper method of caring for the work?If you selected a work that is outstretched over a frame, all you need to do is simply hang it; no need for special nails or screws. The canvas is coated with a layer of transparent varnish intended to protect the picture from humidity, dust and sunlight. However, we still don't recommend hanging the picture in direct contact with strong sunlight.
If you ordered rolled canvas, you can frame the picture or stretch it out on a wooden frame at a professional workshop. If you chose to stretch it out, please inform the professional of the four small crosses located at the four corners of the canvas, approximately one centimeter (0.4") from the black frame: these are reference points for stretching out the picture.
I think there is a fold or crease mark on the canvas. What should I do?If you received the work outstretched, the simplest and best you to solve this, is to place the work on a smooth surface (a table for instance) face down (the painted side). Using a damp cloth, gently rub the creased area and let the canvas dry. You can repeat the process one or two times more, until the crease disappears.
If you chose a rolled canvas, you can perform the procedure described above, but in any case, once you stretch out the canvas on a wooden frame, any fold or crease will disappear.
