I have been a photographer for most of my adult life. One of my favorite things to do is to digitally paint photographs that were taken by myself or my associates.
My paintings are done using traditional painting techniques applied to a digital canvas using digital tools which include a computer, a digitizing tablet, stylus, and software.
As with traditional painting, I apply digital paint and other mediums such as watercolor, oils, impasto, chalk, pen & ink, etc. as if it were a physical medium using brush strokes and paint. Digital paintings are not created by the computer but they are created on the computer.
