Stormy Sunset At Water's Edge

Painting of a beautiful stormy sky sunset at Laguna Beach, where small pebbles. This is digitally painted by hand on my computer. I use the Wacom Intuos 4 tablet and pen and several different kinds of software to get the painting look like the "real" painted version on canvas. Since I was a painter in oil and other medium on canvas for 30 years, I understand what an oil paint should look like and I apply those skills to my digital paintings.
Digital paintings have many advantages over paintings on canvas or paper. The most important of these advantages of digital over "real" is that since digital was created digitally, it will look on canvas or paper once printed exactly as you see it on the monitor and not flat! It is a frequent complaint of buyers after purchasing a print of an oil or acrylic paint on canvas, since on your monitor you 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 art. You get exactly what you see! It is also green art--meaning it uses nontoxic materials and doesn't kill trees in the making!
