Birds Of Paradise In The Fog
Angela A Stanton
Painting - Pastel And Pencil
I have always been fascinated by the Birds of Paradise. With their many colors and poses for getting attention, they are probably the weirdest but the most amazing looking creatures in the world. Here I panted them using digital tools on my computer with Wacom Intuos 4 tablet and pen out of imagination--it is possible that such look doesn't actually exist but it does in my mind. I am also in love with fog so here I combined the two.
Digital paintings have many advantages over paintings in oil or acrylic on canvas or board. The most important of these advantages of digital over "real" is that since they were already created digitally, they will be exactly as you see them on the monitor and not flat! This is a frequent complaint of purchasing a print of an oil paint on canvas, for example, since here you only see the photograph of that oil paint and hence all textures are flattened and are not enhanced. You don't get this problem with digital painting. You get exactly what you see! It is also green art--meaning it uses nontoxic materials and doesn't kills trees in the making!
