I had a great comment on my last bullfight entry the other day, on my normal artist blog. I had presented there my first Toroscapes, these strange bullfighting paintings which are the result of a mixed technique involving classical and digital art. The woman wrote:
“It certainly makes bullfighting appear in a different light, your painting that is.
I live in Spain and here, of course, bullfighting is not just a dirty word that many “do-gooders” want to ban. Maybe you ought to consider starting a blog in Spanish? You could almost be certain to be overrun by orders for your art (if that is not already the case). Especially as you are adding a completely different viewpoint on the subject.”
I guess this “different light” she is speaking about, it is simply
“The Digital Twilight”
Yes, a computer can be a wonderful tool for art, like all the other tools we use for our paintings. Unfortunately, many people still think that digital art is not really art… a vast field for discussion of course, but let me tell you this;
To make a beautiful digital painting, you need a great sense of colours and composition, and you need a lot of creativity, imagination, courage, sensitivity. Have I forgotten something? Something which classical art has, and digital art cannot have?
I can honestly say that the painting I saw recently, which most amazed me, was a digital painting.
