What is digital hand-painting?
The painting is created from an original digital image using the “brushes” and tools in advanced software like
Photoshop and Corel Painter.  The artist renders the final image using a complementary palate of colors with appropriate brush techniques – exactly like physical painting but all digitally.  The final image is then printed on real canvas using special print techniques.  The result is a stunning image very much like a real oil or acrylic painting at a fraction of the cost – and you can easily have multiple copies.

How to get started?

  • It is best to have an original image created specifically for digital painting. The lighting, pose, and costume can be selected for the most flattering result.  A suitable existing image could be used, but must be selected carefully – the artist reserves the right of approval of the image.
  • The digital image is then used to create the painting and submitted for approval.
  • Digital hand-paintings look best when printed on high quality canvas – samples are available for inspection.  The prints come in various sizes in standard formats.  The canvas prints are mounted, stretched and Gallery Wrapped, ready for hanging.  Optionally, the mounted print may be inserted in a standard sized frame.
