The Restlessness Of Springtime Rest
Angela A Stanton
Painting - Oil On Canvas
A painting of the feeling of spring. A hummingbird is catching a little rest, cleaning its beak from the nectar just collected. The world is full of new life, new blooms, everything is accelerating, fast, colorful but light, and noisy but quiet.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 and other mediums like tempera for 30 years, I understand what an oil paint 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.
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!
