About Digital Painting
Digital-Oil 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, digital artist brush, stylus and painting software. The artist creates the digital painting directly on the computer. The finished digital painting is transfered to fine art canvas via museum-quality Giclee Printing.
Digital painting is widely used in conceptual design for film, television & video games.
Joe 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."
(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 of approximately 100 years.
