What is Digital Painting?

My digital paintings begin with a high-resolution digital photo. Next, using Corel Painter, a digital painting software, my MacBook Pro, and Wacom drawing tablet (as shown in the photo below) the digital photo is brought into the system as a source photo and the magic begins! Every pixel in the digital image gets touched, pushed, moved, colored, or highlighted with digital brushes. In the Corel painting program are many digital brushes that emulate traditional artists brushes as if they were working in mediums, such as oils, acrylics, watercolors, and many more.  A full range color palette and many digital surfaces can be chosen for color and texture. Digital brushes can be changed in size, opacity, re-saturation, and other attributes so that the artist can fine tune a brush to their needs and liking. Just like in traditional mediums, the artist can completely develop their own style and techniques within Corel Painter.

After the completed painting is paid in full by the client, we send it off to our printer where it is printed, then bonded to the highest quality canvas, using a time-honored technology that fuses the image directly to the canvas. The canvas is then sealed with several coats of lacquer, then hand finished with brush strokes of acrylic, then sealed again. You can see the process here! Your painting can be made into a mounted canvas perfect for framing, or into a beautiful gallery wrap ready for hanging.
