Woodwork by Nigel Smith and GCS Digital Artistry
Digital painting is a method of creating an art object (painting) digitally and/or a technique for making digital art on the computer. As a method of creating an art object, it adapts traditional painting mediums such as acrylic paint, oils, ink, etc. and applies the pigment to traditional carriers, such as woven canvas cloth, paper, polyester, etc. As a technique, it refers to a computer graphics software program that uses a virtual canvas and virtual painting box of brushes, colors, and other supplies. The virtual box contains many instruments that do not exist outside the computer and give a digital artwork a different look and feel from an artwork that is made the traditional way.
All of my Giclee digital paintings on canvas are printed on quality canvas with archival inks and coated with a UVB protectant that protects against fading, moisture, and abrasion for over 100 years. The frames that enhance my larger canvas paintings are handmade by me and each one is unique. They are designed to be part of the total work of art.
