Digital Painting is an emerging art form in which traditional painting techniques such as watercolor, oils, impasto, etc. are applied using digital tools by means of a computer, a digitizing tablet, stylus, and painting software. Digital painting differs from other forms of digital art and computer generated art, in particular, in that it does not involve the computer rendering from a model. The artist uses painting techniques to create the digital painting directly on the computer.

The main difference between digital and traditional painting is the non-linear process. That is, an artist can often arrange their painting in layers that can be edited independently. Also, the ability to undo and redo strokes frees the artist from a linear process. But a digital painter must employ many, if not all, of the techniques and study of a traditional painter.

Digital is widely used in conceptual design for film, television and video games. Digital painting software give artists a similar environment to a physical painter: a canvas, painting tools, mixing palettes, and a multitude of color options.

Joseph explains his process:

"To create a painting I start with a digital photo, or I scan a film photo. I hand brush and blend the pixels using a digital paintbrush stylus. I use the exact same motion and technique when I apply a traditional paintbrush to canvas. I love painting this way; I have total control over color and light, this allows me to bring out the emotional expressiveness of the image. When the digital painting is complete, I transfer the image to fine artist canvas using rich UV archival pigments and a state of the large-format giclee art printer."

Giclee printing (pronounced 'Zhee-clay & 'Jee-clay') is used by major art museums for archiving entire collections. The giclee process involves spraying microscopic dots of ink onto fine quality art canvas. The combination of archival inks and fine artist canvas yield stunning light fast vibrancy and longevity (approximately 100 years.)
