...My Only Sunshine
Digital Art - Digital Painting/photographic Art
This sunflower digital oil/impasto painting is the mate to one I posted a couple of months ago - hence the title which is the second part of the opening line of the song, "You are my sunshine..." This is an original digital painting with the final layer done in an impasto style to enhance and deepen the feeling of texture in a digital work. It was accomplished in many layers much like an old chromolithography would have been. The first layer is an extremely abstract version, followed by a softened Impressionist layer, then a more detailed layer of digital oils. After adjustments to opacity and color, additional layers were created in a fine brush impasto..
The sunflower is an annual plant in the daisy family that is best known for its size, height and bright yellow petals (occasionally red) with a dark brown, almost black, seeded center. Grown primarily for its oil and edible seeds, the sunflower is one of nature's most nutritious foods for animals and humans alike.
According to Wikipedia, the plant construction is unique and complex and what we generally think of as the flower is not exactly that. "The plant has an erect rough-hairy stem, reaching typical heights of 3 meters. The tallest sunflower on record achieved 8.23 m (27 ft). Sunflower leaves are broad, coarsely toothed, rough and mostly alternate. What is often called the "flower" of the sunflower is actually a "flower head" (or flower heads) of numerous small individual 5=petaled flowers (florets). The outer flowers which resemble petals are called ray flowers."

This painting is an ORIGINAL digital art work created on the computer from a a public domain painting or photograph, recreated and hand-painted on a Wacom tablet using a variety of painting styles and digital mediums. According to the International Association of Fine Art Digital Print Makers (IAFADP), "An original digital print is not based upon using original artwork outside of the computer. The artist may use elements as source materials, such as photographs, drawings or other appropriated images (those in the public domain), but THE FINAL FORM OF THE WORK EXISTS ONLY IN THE COMPUTER AND AS THE FINAL PRINT OR AS AN EDITION OF PRINTS." Furthermore, according to ArtBusiness.com, there is a distinct difference in value between a print/scan of an original watercolor, painting or photograph "...as opposed to original digital works of art created by digital artists entirely or in part on computers which ARE considered to be unique." This is exactly how I create my original works and each painting is the result of many layers of hand-painting in various styles (impasto, pen and ink, digital oils, etc.) then overlaid upon one another.
