Calla Lily In The Morning Light
Angela A Stanton
Painting - Oil Painting
A white lily in the morning sunshine is a hand-painted oil paint-equivalent using my computer with the Wacom Intuos 4 tablet and pen and Artrage. The textures are highly visible if you click on the art (click on the pollen stem!) and see the many colors and dimensions. Because the art was digitally created, these textures and depth will be strongly visible to you on a canvas print.
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 look on canvas once printed exactly as you see them on the monitor and not flat! This is a frequent complaint of buyers after purchasing a print of an oil or acrylic paint on canvas, since on your monitor you only see the digitally photographed version of that oil or acrylic paint. Digital photography of highly textured items like oil or acrylic paint removes all textures and makes them appear flat.
You don't get this problem with digital painting or drawing. You get exactly what you see! It is also green art--meaning it uses nontoxic materials and doesn't kill trees in the making!
