A Setting for Wine Tasting

The setting for these prints was a winery in Northern California. No actual wine here (sorry), but I wanted to present another group of prints that were created off of the same photographic capture. I am posting four art prints each with a slightly different presentation method. I was working with two photographs (one horizontal, one vertical) of the same setting using different digital art techniques.

I’ll start with one where I used a basic watercolor technique.

The Gathering Spot

Using the same capture as the above print, I created the next print using an Impasto style of painting. The impasto style uses thick paint to create a texture that is almost 3D.

And then continuing with the same technique, I used the other “shot” I had taken which was more horizontal showing more of the area to the right of the table. Again, the same impasto style.

Wine Tasting

Then sticking to this particular horizontal capture, I used a fauvism style which was an art movement established early in the 20th century. This style focuses on bold colors, textured brushwork and slightly surreal depictions.

Thoughts? As I have said before, everyone reacts to visual art techniques and looks differently, so I am not in the least offended by opinions.

      On a personal level, I tend to lean towards “abstract” type pieces and fauvism hangs in that sector, so I get what you are saying!! Thanks for stopping by!! Have a great week!!

    I like getting to see your different techniques! I like the last one best because it is most evident of an artistic and unique look. It is the furthest from reality where as I don’t get that with the others.
