art prints from digital painting – quality and feeling
Sunlit Under Mountain – digital painting / art prints – DB 2005
There is a phenomena here when the sky is completely overcast. In the distance, the mountains frequently show signs of isolated sunlight. It almost looks like it is coming out of the mountainside itself rather than a break in the clouds.
Like many of these pieces, I question my ability to portray what is really going on. Despite this – the digital painting seen here has a quality and feeling to it that does capture this type of weather and time of day.
To me, art would not be art if it were literally trying to duplicate nature. Putting three dimensions into two or rendering a 3-D sculpture which is relatively unchanging – cannot do justice to being in the scene.
On the other hand, an artist can portray more by revealing his eyes, understanding, feeling, and interpretation.
