Spring Reed In The Canyon

Painting - Painting
There is a canyon right behind my home with a little creek (not a river like on the picture) that is covered with reed to the point of a pin could not be dropped. By the fall the reed is fallen over from all the strong Santa Ana Winds that bring our famous California fires. This picture is from memory of the kind of reed that grown on lakes on the edge. I wish we had a gorgeous lake like that around here! This was painted with the iPad using Inspire Pro app.
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!
