same figures differently
Air Hoe 1 – digital painting 4 original art prints – Dan Beck 2007
This was the first of three Air Hoe images which used the same figure. I changed my template to accommodate my new printing dimensions better. I have done some upgrades to my painting computer and have improved color in print outs where I didn’t think it was possible, but must print now with larger margins – so I am rethinking how I will offer these digital paintings as art prints.
I accidentally created this figure in the old sized template – so I copied and pasted into three different paintings that were on the new sized template. This is not the way I normally work – but that is part of the fun of it.
Digital opens up lots of new possibilities – some of course good – some less. Setting limits, and creating and changing the rules as I good is also part of the fun.
This particular piece, like the second was influenced by an exhibit at SFMOMA which I saw a few days prior to this painting.
Despite that, it is my twist.
- Figures Art Gallery – for lack of a better link to website – check some other images from 2005/6 which figure in
- SFMOMA – always worth a look – wonderful museum – even the gift shop was surprisingly fun
- Digital Possibilities – I liked this phrase and googled it – the most interesting and pertinent result I found in the time I allotted myself to look – not exactly the same thinking but worth a gander at the changing landscape
