A few years ago, I became fascinated with Three dimensional (3D) modeling applications that allow you to create objects to be viewable from any direction. This lets you reuse an object (boat, person, tree) more than once, since you can later alter the appearance of an object to fit your needs. Of course,the time required to create 3D object in the first place is not trivial and represents a large time commitment.
Once created from polygons mathematically, the objects can be
combined in various ways, or new ones can be created on the fly.
You can apply textures and materials to 3D objects to create
completely different ones. For example, a mountain can become a purple mountain in the distance, or a grassy field up close. In addition, atmospheres can change the lighting and determine
where shadows fall.
Some digital artists do not use 3D objects, but instead paint using a computers' mouse or graphic tablet and stylus with photo editing
and draw programs to create the art. Many of these artists primarily create abstract paintings or perhaps edit photographs they have taken with a digital camera.
As you can see from my work, I don't use either of these techniques,
but rather produce representational artwork that comes from my imagination. Usually none of my work starts as aphotograph.
My work includes, landscapes, 1890's advertising art, old poster
style art, sea, sun, shore and sand, sunsets, flowers and still life paintings, science fiction and fantasy work as well.Paintings here
are available to purchase as original works of art printed on canvas and stretched with hanging hardware installed and ready to hang. Should you prefer the work to be printed on a metal substrate or on archival paper and matted, inquire about pricing. Please check out my galleries and see what you like. You may contact me for additional sizes and pricing as well as questions or comments.
