Painting - Computer Painting Mixed Media ( See Description Below)
A reference photo is usually at the centre of my work but not always..I normally breakdown my personal photos to basically a line drawing in grayscale..( minimum lines and surfaces) so it acts as a simple sketch. The exception being when I purposefully want it to be more photographic. I set my own palette as I work up the painting... I have developed a personalized way of creating visual texturing through a method I call" constructive/destructive brushwork".My objective over the last few years has been to develop a style that incorporates the look and appeal of traditional brushwork but with a natural approach to the media specific difference that digital painting offers... I love to explore the tools that are available to the modern day artist or any artist willing to take advantage of the creative potential that technology has in store for open minded creators of art that understand that there can be no limitations imposed on the future of creative expression . I welcome digital painting as the latest newcomer to the painting category of fine art.....and yes we all know that it's not real paint......but other than that, the process is getting darn close.....
