I have been working on a painted screen this week.
It is quite a sophisticated and complicated design, and has a greater range of colours than I normally consider using in something of this size.
It made me remember conversations that I have had in the past, when I have been asked to scan something so that copies can be made more quickly (and cheaply).
Below is an example that shows why I have always said, “no”.
They really are the same screen – only the bright light of the scanner has burnt out subtle details and flattened the colours.
The image is also blurred – this is mainly the fault of my scanner, which can just about cope with black and white documents; but the upload process to WordPress (when an image gets “crunched”) did not help !
