Digital Painting – Traditional Method, New Media, New Trend?

Digital Painting – Traditional Method, New Media

 

 

 

Source: (1) a digital landscape I’ve been working on lately… – Charisma-Art.com Presents The Art of Conni Togel

As part of my new line of art experience, I have been creating digital paintings on my ipad.
Using the same techniques I use on my original oil and acrylic paintings, these originals are all created using digital paint brushes within the painting applications on my ipad. I use the same pallet colors I would use in my studio, and I customize the digital brushes to make them “scrubby” looking like my worn out brushes in my studio are.
The process takes about the same time as my oil paintings take – but with the advantage of no drying time, no poisonous fumes to breath, no mess, total scaleability, total portability, vibrant colors without muddiness, and, well, I can paint in the car, in the kitchen, in bed, wherever. Huge bonus.

Once the digital painting is output onto canvas (I use archival quality inks and substrates that are warrantied for up to 200 years of lightfastness!), each painting is hand-embellished with highlights of real world brush strokes of acrylic paint (same colors that I used in the digital painting!). This adds a bit of texture that catches the light.

So – here is my question to you, dear reader:

Is this new media thing something that needs to fade into the wood (or plastic) work? Is this something that will continue to grow the art world into a new trend?

Drive With The Sheep Incognito

Get Yourself noticed on the road – add one of the vibrant Sheep Incognito license plates to the front of your car!

These are made out of sturdy white pvc – the image is basically melted into the plastic, so it does not fade, does not scratch easily, and it is guaranteed to last for years (unless, of course, you hit a tree or another car, or a moose, or a barn, …you get the idea…).
Mounts onto most cars on the front license plate holder – not all States allow front plates, others require registration plates on the front…

But, you can also put this anywhere else as well – mount it on doors. On Bathroom walls.
On refrigerators.
On fences…

They are weatherproof.
