Painting - Oil Painting
Happy Holidays; Oh let it snow let it snow let it snow. I love watching the snow--only from memory of course since in California we get snow for 1 day about once every 10 years. I hope we get some snow this year! This is my "snow dance" if you will. This is hand painted digital art in oil and impasto style with very heavy texture of the falling snow and the footsteps.
This is a digital hand painting. The benefit of buying a digital painting is that when real canvas paint is shown on Fine Art America, it is only a photograph of the art, so its textures will be blobs and mellow shadows. When it is digital painting, you get the actual original digital image with its textures well pronounced.
Real oil art photographs printed on canvas have no textures; they are flattened out completely so you end up with flat art for both touch and look. With digital art the canvas print retains the textured look. Even when an art piece is digital crayon or chalk or pencil, and so no bulky textures, the crayon's oily slick, or the hardness or softness of the chalk or the scratchiness or smooth blending of pencil lines show exactly the same way on the print as on the original.
When ordering prints of art, you receive better quality prints from digital art than from photographs of real canvas or paper art!
Digital art is also safer to the artist and the buyer since oils release toxic fumes, particularly as the colors are mixed. The thinner is also toxic. There is nothing toxic about a digital painting. :) Enjoy!
