Impressions Of A Newport Beach Sunset
Angela A Stanton
Painting - Pastel And Tempera
An impression of a fiery sunset over Newport Beach marina in California "Impressions Of A Newport Beach Sunset". Sailboats are anchored off shore, swimming distance from the beach. This is a digital painting; painted using various computer software but fully hand painted.
This is digitally painted by hand on my computer. Digitally painted pictures printed on canvas have the nicest effects. Since I was a painter in oil, pastel, and other mediums like tempera for 30 years, I understand what a painting should look like and I those skills are added to my digital paintings.
Digital paintings have many advantages over paintings that were originally painted on canvas or paper and then photographed and posted for sale as print. The most important of these advantages of digital over "real" is that since digital was created digitally, it will look printed on canvas or paper exactly as you see it on the monitor and not flat! Flat shadows remain flat in print but digital shadows remain textured shadows.
It is a frequent complaint of buyers after purchasing a print of a photograph of an oil or acrylic paint on canvas that it prints flat, since on your monitor you see the
digitally photographed version of that oil or acrylic paint and the textures are flat shadows and not digital shadows--there is a difference.
This painting is so heavily textured that clients coming to my studio often caress the canvas. The texture cannot be felt but looks as if it were there. Texture can be added using gel upon special order from the artist direct.
