Painterly Mobile Artist Paul Cutright

Featured artist Paul Cutright asked me what it was about this image that I liked. For me, it was the flow and movement in the piece. My eye was drawn in and while looking at is I had a feeling of peace and relaxation. When you find out what Paul does for a living, you won't be surprised that I felt an easing of tensions while viewing his work!

Paul's Commentary

This image of flowing water is one of several I made recently during a walk along the Laurel River in Western North Carolina. I made this on my iPhone 4s with Slow Shutter Cam, an app I particularly love. I like the magical, otherworldly appearance it can produce. I am inspired in this kind of imagery by the Impressionists because that style of visual expression most closely approximates how I see the world.

That being said, my photographic tastes are highly eclectic as is my subject matter. I enjoy portraiture, landscape, still life, street photography, black and white and color. My photographic influences by other photographers are really too numerous to mention! 

I have been using an iPhone almost exclusively since November 2011. My enchantment with photography has been reborn and rejuvenated by the freedom to photograph unencumbered by traditional photographic equipment, as well as the spontaneous and intuitive application of creative expression afforded by a huge selection of apps!

I did very little editing with this image, however. Just some simple adjustments in Snapseed, which is usually my first choice for fine tuning an image before using any other apps.
