Still Life With Peaches And Copper Bowl
Digital Art - Digital Painting/photographic Art
This still life is hand-painted digitally from a composite of public domain images, primarily paintings by William Merritt Chase and Raphael Peale. Using a variety of painting styles, each layer of canvas is overlaid on the earlier work, filters applied and opacity adjusted. The whole is overlaid again with textures. This is not a "faithful reproduction" as elements have been combined and the style is unique to digital painting.
A still life (plural still lifes) is a work of art depicting mostly inanimate subject matter, typically commonplace objects which may be either natural (food, flowers, dead animals, plants, rocks, or shells) or man-made (drinking glasses, books, vases, jewelry, coins, pipes, and so on). With origins in the Middle Ages and Ancient Greco-Roman art, still-life painting emerged as a distinct genre and professional specialization in Western painting by the late 16th century, and has remained significant since then. Still life gives the artist more freedom in the arrangement of elements within a composition than do paintings of other types of subjects such as landscape or portraiture.

Many of my paintings, including this one, follow a process similar to early chromolithography in that each section of the painting is often a different layer. Wikipedia describes the process of chromolithography as multi-layered, sometimes requiring 25 to 50 layers to achieve the colors and fine details.
The difference between that process and my own is that in my case I may paint the entire layer originally in a very abstract underpainting then repaint the next layer in a slightly less abstract style, then another layer in a realistic oils or impasto, etc. Another layer may be to deepen the color of only certain areas requiring the "erasing" of all but one small part of the image. Almost all of my paintings require anywhere from 10-30 layers to complete, some as many as 50.

I am a western New York based artist with a passion for the sea and a deep love for the natural world around me. My paintings are sometimes based on images in the public domain or on elements from classic art work. Other paintings are based on original photographs. All are painted on a Wacom tablet using a variety of painting programs and filters and because the final creations are entirely digital in nature they are considered to be original art work not reproductions.
This painting is an ORIGINAL digital art work created on the computer from a composite of public domain paintings or photographs, recreated and hand-painted on a Wacom tablet using a variety of painting styles and digital mediums. According to the International Association of Fine Art Digital Print Makers (IAFADP), "An original digital print is not based upon using original artwork outside of the computer. The artist may use elements as source materials, such as photographs, drawings or other appropriated images (those in the public domain), but THE FINAL FORM OF THE WORK EXISTS ONLY IN THE COMPUTER AND AS THE FINAL PRINT OR AS AN EDITION OF PRINTS." Furthermore, according to ArtBusiness.com, there is a distinct difference in value between a print/scan of an original watercolor, painting or photograph "...as opposed to original digital works of art created by digital artists entirely or in part on computers which ARE considered to be unique." This is exactly how I create my original works and each painting is the result of many layers of hand-painting in various styles (impasto, pen and ink, digital oils, etc.) then overlaid upon one another.
