Until recently, art meant creating something on a physical medium with pencils, brushes, pens and paint. With these trying times, we need a hobby to get through our everyday lives. Some people choose dancing or singing, but those people who enjoy the finer taste of hobbies like poem writing and painting are now put at a disadvantage as they cannot go outside and buy the required materials. So what does a painter do when they cannot buy a simple canvas or a stand or the brushes themselves to paint it on?
They begin their transition to digital art. Digital art is this new form of art that uses the online landscape and other software tools to create masterpieces using a colour scape like Munsell colour chart, to exhibit vibrant colours and control the hues of the image.
What are the benefits of digital art?
One of the biggest issues that face traditional artists throughout the centuries including the likes of Leonardo da Vinci and Picasso is the fact that they nearly have to throw away an entire painting because of a minor error or because something doesn't match the way that they want them to look. So what happens when a person indulges in the art of digital art a person can simply hit the undo button and save themselves hours and help them perfect their masterpiece without any errors and any other ways to cover them are used by painting over them and completely tarnishing the vibe of the painting. Many online tools which are available on Apple devices come with the feature of undoing an error. This will help build the perfect painting.
The next unsaid benefit of using digital art is that a person can save a lot of money. Art supplies cost a lot of money and have the capability of burning a forest fire size hole in the average painter’s pocket. When a person uses digital art applications online, they can create the perfect hues and the absolutely accurate tones that they envision by using the Munsell colour chart or any other software that are available for free or in a small one-time payment scheme all over the internet. When they use digital art they can use a hundred different brushes whether it is a round brush or a flat brush or using a colour curve or a gradient chart to change the entire outlook of the painting. This would not be possible with traditional art, and to buy the tools to try to make these changes alone would cost the average artist in Sydney a few hundred dollars.
When a person uses the power of digital art to its maximum potential they can get the perfect colours that they want out of it. Mixing colours in a palette may give an aesthetic feel although it is very time consuming and eventually every single artist will run out of colour and paints and curse their painting in frustration. Although in an online mode a person can simply just pick out the colour that they see in their heads and make the painting look as realistic as they want to make it look and explore and experiment with colours that they didn’t think that they were able to use before or even fathom the beauty of in combinations.
The best artists and the ones who are just starting out this hobby can greatly benefit and find some practice in the online use of digital art and make for themselves a unique experience and masterpiece.
