Digital Poduction Techniques in Visual Media

Digital Art: Woman in Cowboy Hat Dancing

The techniques of digital art are used extensively by the mainstream media in advertisements, and by film-makers to produce special effects. Desktop publishing has had a huge impact on the publishing world, although that is more related to graphic design. It is possible that general acceptance of the value of digital art will progress in much the same way as the increased acceptance of electronically produced music over the last three decades.

Digital art can be purely computer-generated (such as fractals and algorithmic art) or taken from other sources, such as a scanned photograph or an image drawn using vector graphics software using a mouse or graphics tablet.

Though technically the term may be applied to art done using other media or processes and merely scanned in, it is usually reserved for art that has been non-trivially modified by a computing process (such as a computer program, microcontroller or any electronic system capable of interpreting an input to create an output); digitized text data and raw audio and video recordings are not usually considered digital art in themselves, but can be part of the larger project of computer art and information art.

Artworks are considered digital painting when created in similar fashion to non-digital paintings but using software on a computer platform and digitally outputting the resulting image as painted on canvas.

Andy Warhol created digital art with the help of Amiga, Inc. in July 1985 when he publicly introduction at Lincoln Center Amiga paint software.

Trish Biddle and Her Figurative Paintings

Trish Biddle is published internationally, and is collected around the world. Born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, American artist Trish Biddle studied at the Dallas Institute of Art, before beginning her career as an illustrator and textile designer. Her process of drawing, painting and designing eventually melded onto canvases, creating romantic images and her unmistakable Art Deco figurative paintings.

Her expertise in capturing nature and light creates richly colored, breath-taking canvases. With a well-defined style, broad, romantic strokes and vibrant color, Trish paints figurative, floral, fashion icons and children’s art. She travels the world and enjoys translating her experiences into oil on canvas.

Spanish Heat by Trish Biddle

Showcasing her sense of design, Trish captures the Art Deco style of fashion, elegance, sophistication and the simplicity of the era. Tamara De Lempicka who defined Art Deco painting as we know it, Argentinean tango dancers and depression era dance marathons have all inspired Trish’s vintage, figurative paintings. The faces are obscured purposely to allow the viewer to identify with the images of the graceful dancers their own romantic notions. Backgrounds are evidence of textile, ironwork and architectural designs extracted from her own designs and travels. Trish currently resides in Westlake Texas

Trish Biddle paintings are in corporate and private collections around the world, and she has been published internationally by Encore Art Group – Win Devon, Canadian Art Prints, Portal. Her art is available at most major retailers including Bed Bath & Beyond, Wal-mart, Target, Tuesday Morning, Michaels, TJ Maxx, and e-tailer art.com. Trish has had over $1 million in retail sales and been commissioned by Hilton hotels, Churchill Downs, Westminster Kennel Club and Del Mar Thoroughbread Club. Actress Eva Longoria Parker is a fan of Trish’s work, and used her art for her charity, Padres Contra El Cancer in Los Angeles.

Spirit of Dance by Kitty Meijering

Kitty Meijering

Kitty Meijering was born in 1974, she lives and works in The Netherlands. After completing her studies at the art university in Amsterdam, Kitty Meijering dedicated herself to paintings of dance. The figures she paints seem entirely lost in motion.

In dance, she has found a way of fusing abstract painting and figures. The transition between the various stages of movementis seamless. This grace is only possible by means of the artist’s excellent attention to the most insignificant details. The elegance of the figures she paints express her intuitive sense of harmony and shape.

Mille et Une Nuit by Denis Nolet

Share this artwork:

Mille et Une Nuit by Denis Nolet

Denis Nolet was born in Quebec in 1964. Beginning his study of art at the age of nine, Nolet was able to experiment with various styles of painting early on, finding his own unique genre in a fusion of his influences and establishing himself as an artist by the time he was only twenty.

Preferring moonlight to sunlight, Nolet paints scenes saturated with the romance of the night. With a brushstroke suggestive of Seurat and a palate of infinite hues, Nolet creates a mirage of his medium wherein he seems to transform the oil paint into soft, smooth, cloth. The finished painting almost appears as if it were dyed rather than painted. This illusion of a delicate fabric in place of canvas makes Nolet’s work all the more sentimental. It is only upon closer inspection of the work that brushstrokes become visible and the piece can be more certainly deciphered as an oil painting.

Denis Nolet

As the properties of earth and sky become blurred, the wet pavement reflects the architecture, figures, street lamps, trees, flower vases, and other objects of beauty included in the work that make Nolet’s compositions picture perfect. The discernment between the planes of space is distinguished by color saturation. Shadows on the lower half of the picture plane become just as important as the intended three-dimensional objects themselves.

These muted reflections divide the canvas, giving the final work a balance that is so cinematic one may be reminded of a 1950’s film or a life-like animation from a Disney movie. In other instances, Nolet’s work bears resemblance to an analytical architectural drawing, pushing and pulling negative space with complementary or analogous colors, occupying planes of light and shadow, while portraying his figures like an elaborate trophy awarded for ballroom dancing or a scene from “Moulin Rouge“.

While keeping the paintings somewhat ambiguous with anonymous silhouettes and mysterious, yet familiar, locations the viewer is easily carried away into Nolet’s idyllic world. Despite his varying compositions, all of Nolet’s work contains a common theme of universal romanticized urbanism. Whether the picture reveals a couple dancing on a rooftop or embracing in a misty evening beneath the street lights in the quaint streets of an idealized French-flavored city, Nolet’s paintings exude the exhilaration present in any moment containing passion. Amid a crowd, or alone on a balcony, Nolet’s couples draw the viewer in, encouraging the onlooker to dream of what was, what is, or what could be, love.
