So I am really excited. When I was in college, I studied studio art and photography. Unfortunately, I had some serious issues with the chemicals involved in darkroom processing and oil painting. Photoshop was a Godsend to me. For a few years now, I have been wanting to learn how to paint digitally. I had first seen the work of a photographer named Rod Evans over ten years ago. It gave me an idea of where I wanted to go, but I never seemed to have the time to learn how to paint digially. This past Spring, I finally made the time commitment to teach myself. And I really, really love it. The above image is painted from a photo I created. This is actually printed on a canvas gallery wrap and hangs in my studio.
Don’t get me wrong, I love being a Portrait Photographer, but I have always been drawn to paintings. My very favorite painter is John Singer Sargent. A close second is Vigee-LeBrun. So to be able to produce work with that feel is really a dream come true for me personally. And learning new things keeps you from getting stale.
This is going to be a new product that I will be offering to my clients this year. I am still perfecting my technique, but I am loving the results. I hope you will love it too.
