ImpressionismI have been most inspired by the art style impressionism. There have been and will forever be amazing artists creating impressionism. There is a wonderful history to this art style; Impressionism is a 19th-century art movement that originated with a group of Paris-based artists. Their independent exhibitions brought them to prominence during the 1870′s and 1880′s, in spite of harsh opposition from the conventional art community in France. -Wikipedia
I create the impressionism with my digital techniques, I call it digital impressionism. Traditionally, impressionists express with a particular types of brush stokes and an accurate depiction of light in its changing qualities. I’m breaking tradition, I switched to digital art about a year ago because I could no longer hold my paintbrush without pain. The button pushing required for digital artistry is much easier on my hands. At first, I did consider it cheating to make digital art instead of painting but now that I know how much knowledge it takes to design digitally, I have a healthy respect. Most of the art in this gallery took about 500 clicks or edits to make and that’s nothing to sneeze at and could probably not be done by most. I’ve learned so much over the past year and there’s still much more to learn. The act of creating art is wonderful for me whether it’s with photographs and software or paint and brush.
