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

Digital Painting – Traditional Method, New Media

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?

BIRDS OF A FEATHER

NEW WORK IN PROGRESS AT THE SHEEP INCOGNITO STUDIO

Back in the Studio for a bit of painting – with a new one on the easel:

“Birds Of A Feather”.

Completed the initial sketch, not a bit of drying time, and then I’ll start adding the colors. This will be a new knitting painting for all my knitting, spinning, crocheting, weaving, sheep breeding, and Sheep Incognito friends. Of course, birding friends might like this one as well – though I’m not sure what breed these birds are…Kni-Twits?
