Piece description from the artist
My software of choice is Corel Painter, every brush stroke is done by hand, no filters!
Digital painting is a method of creating an art object (painting) digitally and/or a technique for making digital art in the computer. As a method of creating an art object, it adapts traditional painting medium such as acrylic paint, oils, ink, watercolor, etc. and applies the pigment to traditional carriers, such as woven canvas cloth, paper, polyester etc. by means of computer software driving industrial robotic or office machinery (printers)
Ron Morecraft spent over 30 years as a special effects photographer in New York City and New Jersey, creating fantasy images for clients ranging from Columbia Records and MTV to Revlon and The New York Times.
With his background in fine art, his painterly approach blossomed with the advent of Photoshop and other digital tools. Ron doesn't just take pictures, he "makes" pictures, executing his visions by supplementing his photographic work with his digital design skills. His subject matter ranges from travel to still life. Each image is unique – either as a painting, a collage or straight photograph.
Ron currently lives in Asheville, NC.
