I studied Monet art for many years. I fell in love with the impressionist painting technique probably at age 14 during my painting classes. My teacher assigned me to create a presentation about Impressionism and I just fell in love with this painting style, brush strokes, and broken color technique. Since then my favorite painting techniques are: impressionism and knife painting techniques.
For me traditional and digital techniques are the same. It doesn't matter what canvas you are working on with your current project: traditional or digital, you are creating art which represents your soul, your mood, your attitude, your painting style.
Thanks to the digital era, I have ability to create my art from anywhere. I can use my desktop, laptop, iPad or iPhone. I can even start working on my art using my mobile devices and continue working on it later on using my desktop. This is simply amazing and very productive. I just came back from my Iceland vacation. During the day we spent almost all the time taking pictures (using DSLR and Lr mobile) and flying drones.
Iceland is a very beautiful place, it’s like mother nature in her natural, untouched beauty. What amazed me most are the colors. I never saw colors as bright as in Iceland. The contrast and color contrast are like an impressionist painting with perfect broken color technique. Of course I had my mobile devices with me (iPad Pro and iPhone) with Adobe Sketch, Adobe Capture CC apps installed on them. When we were on location taking pictures I always took extra time to take pictures using my iPhone to create patterns, looks, colors, and of course brushes because I knew I will need all of those to create paintings of Iceland using the impressionism technique.
