Pillards Of Dust The Eagle Nebula
Painting - Oil Painting
Pillars of Dust The Eagle Nebula (typo in original name, sorry) was inspired by the new photo that the Hubble space craft recently took. I found it so beautiful that I decided to replicate it with artistic impression with a few changes to add elements that may or may not be there. I am fascinated by space travel and so this beautiful image represents the beauty of the universe. This image is painted by hand (not a photo paint) and contains heavy textures.
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!
