Van Gogh's Iris
Angela A Stanton
Painting - Crayon
My garden is full of these gorgeous Van Gogh Irises--yes, that is the real name of these flowers. This is the first year that they grew so beautifully, so many, and lasted so long! It so captivated me that I painted it. I have planted a single bulb and now have about 30. So what you see here is a "bundle" as I see it from above when I look at them.
This painting is with crayons so has no texture. Printing on any medium will look great.
This is a digital hand painting. The benefit of buying a digital painting is that when canvas paint is presented on Fine Art America, it is only a photograph of the art. When it is digital painting, you get the actual original digital image with its textures well pronounced if any. Art photographs printed on canvas have no textures; they are flattened out completely so you end up with flat art for both touch and look. With digital art the print retains the textured look no matter what it is printed on. Although this particular piece is by digital crayon and so no bulky textures, the crayon slick texture does show.
Digital art is also safer to the artist and the buyer since oils release toxic fumes, particularly as the colors are mixed. The thinner is also toxic. There is nothing toxic about a digital painting. :) Enjoy!
