FINE ART & ILLUSTRATION
There is a fine line between fine art and illustration.
I try to make all my digital Illustrations as painterly as possible with out losing its illustrative impact. In my fine art portraits, I embody my knowledge as an illustrator to create very strong and impactful images. Seeing is the best way to understand this concept. By looking at the studioís portfolio, it is clear how subtle the differences are between the two of them. I use color as strongly as I use texture and a strong layout to achieve this effect. The fine art piece, Lady In White Over Water Lilies, has a similar feeling to the illustration Darling Jasmin. I believe fine art and illustration should be one. The Guggenheim Museum in New York City, recently had an exhibit of Norman Rockwell the illustrator. This exhibit underscores my point about this concept.
