Everyone is entitled to their opinion. Its the uneducated ones that annoy the hell out of me!
Art is a very personal thing, an image either appeals to you, or it doesn’t. The there is the argument about lines.. are they lines or a variation of shading.
However I recently did an exhibtion of my ink and graphite drawings. Alot of people complained that they were prints with Graphite over the top. No matter how I tried to explain that I had used ink as my background, and as an outline, then applied the graphite for shading, depth etc…. they just couldn’t get the concept!
I was then labled a fake and a fraud, a my work was not original!
I Love the public at large!
