Welcome to Whitaker Painterly Images!
My brand new website is here and I hope that you will take a look and let me know what you think. You may be asking, what is digital painting. I hope that I can explain it better here.
What is Digital Painting?
Digital painting marries the beauty of a photograph combined with the painting techniques now available through an amazing computer process.
Digital painting is also is an emerging art form in which traditional painting techniques such as watercolor and oils are applied using digital tools by means of computer, tablet, stylus and software dedicated to creating beautiful art. I, the artist use painting techniques to create the digital painting directly on the computer.
Artistic Approach of Digital Painting
Included in my artistic approach are brushes that are digitally styled to represent the traditional style like oils, acrylics, pastels, charcoal, pen and even media such as airbrushing. There are also certain effects unique to each type of digital paint which portray the realistic effects of say watercolor on a digital ‘watercolor’ painting. This amazing technique bridges the gap between traditional and digital painting.
The result is a beautiful painting or watercolor that retains the likeness of the subject but, at the same time applies the painterly techniques to create an amazing art piece that is ready to be printed on canvas or watercolor paper and ready to be displayed in any home or office as a centerpiece of beauty and style.
Not A Push Button Process
There are those who use a push button process to create “paintings” and or “watercolors”. That is NOT my technique. After applying any retouching needed, I look at the image, access how I can create a beautiful piece of art and then begin the process of applying my learned techniques. The technique that I use has taken me many years to perfect.
I have studied with the best teachers and I have continued to refine and perfect the process of my painting style. My hope is that when my art is displayed on the wall of the client, they will enjoy their art piece for years to come.
Watercolor or Oil?
Some come to me knowing exactly the kind of art that they want their final piece to reflect. The cool thing is that I can help with that as well. I am happy to look at your image and give you advice on which digital art style will look best with your image. Watercolor images are usually printed on fine art watercolor paper – usually the edge of the piece fade to white or to a pastel color. Oils are usually printed on fine art artists canvas. Both are beautiful!
