The Financial Times looks at David Hockney’s show of Photoshop works:
Hockney’s latest excursion is to the very edges of photographic territory. He has found that Photoshop and other imaging software packages are now good enough for him to draw directly within them. At the Annely Juda gallery in London, he shows images drawn using a computer-generated palette, and switching between finishes that look like watercolour, oils, lino-cut or, when he likes, photographs. The show is divided into two parts: portraits, which are at a further remove from photographs; and landscapes, which are closer. […]
The (computer-)drawn elements are sometimes in the manner of washes, translucent overlays of colour, sometimes more opaque in order to hide distracting detail. The colours have Hockney’s trademark brightness, and include a purple road disappearing into the depth of the picture. The view includes passages of lyrical colour in the rendition of foliage, lots of different greens competing for density and depth.
