universal image translates into more pleasing art prints
Boat-on-an-Ocean – digital painting – 2000 – Dan Beck
It seems to be a day for looking at older work. Such is what happens when new work is either not ready to share or not as good as one would hope.
Between the rocking of the ocean, the complementary orange and blue colors, and the odd green in the sky almost reminiscent of the green flash sometimes present at the moment of sunset – this is a piece to get lost inside.
The first poster sized print I ever did was this piece – but it was not done on a poster quality paper and never had true color.
It was some years later that I started printing on watercolor paper, using pigment inks, and getting the quality color that I have been so apt to promote.
