THIS WAS NOT EXACTLY AN ORDINARY MONDAY MORNING AWAKENING
Painting in a style I come to define as 'Abstract Expressionistic Mythology'. Yes it's figurative as well, of course - but for my process during painting is abstract. First I paint a fast figurative sketch for the painting, but from there it's form, line and colours that are my focus util I can see that the painting is done.
Mythology as these may be scenes from a alternative world.
For me with more than thirty years painting with acrylic paint on large canvases, standing in my studio mixing pigments with PVA (polyvinyl acetate) base - I work basically the same way when painting digital as I did with my large radiator brushes on linen canvas.
Of course it's not exactly the same to paint with acrylic paint as painting digital, but the difference is not greater than working with oil paint. So acrylic painting with pigments and PVA, oil painting with turpentine and it's slow drying process, or my digital painting with my Corel Painters brushes on Wacom Cintiq drawing board - they are all just different types of painting with their own different features.
Fact is that digital painting with what is the right tools for me, give me a larger artistic freedom compared to oil or acrylic. So my reason for painting digital is not the technique or tools in itself, but the larger artistic freedom I get.
