The first three galleries I set up here with the word digital in the title were for artworks that had been created on paper (or canvas), but are available as commercial reproductions from Image Kind.
- Digital Reproductions are of prints and/or paintings. The reproductions are made from scans or photographs of original artworks that are available through FolioTwist.
- Digital Black & Whites are a gallery of sketches (“doodles” is what I call them) that I scanned and “processed”: reduced grey tones to hard black and white, then enlarged them and standardized within a more or less fixed frame. I’ve added signatures to most of them, because the originals are (in my opinion) too informal to be signed. Most of them are tiny — about three inches tall at the most. I call them doodles because I made all of them while talking on Skype, using a fine nib felt-tip pen on small pads of high quality water-color paper.
- Digital Posters are colored variations of the b/w doodles, sometimes with text added. I’ve colored only the digital versions, and all the adjustments I’ve made have been done on my computer, using a stylus (Wacom Bamboo) and PhotoShop (more about this in the next point)
- Digital Flowers are entirely digital. That is, they’re not scanned from anything or created by altering photographs of a spider lilies or poppies. I’ve never liked using vectors so it’s not PhotoShop Illustrator but just plain old PhotoShop, using raw editing tools. When I draw on paper/canvas, I start with carefully planned outlines. But for purely digital images, like these flowers, I start with large patches of bright color that I carve up and push around until I begin to see the result I’m looking for.
