I have done a number of my digital art prints using a fauvism technique and I thought I would share what that means. The “fauvism” technique was introduced in 1905 by a group of artist. It used bold colors, strongly textured brush strokes and non-naturalistic depictions. I like the style as it created more freedom in depiction of subjects versus just straight forward presentations. In my opinion it works well with certain subjects and not so well with others. Unfortunately that still comes back to the eye of the beholder versus any hard set rule, but actually that’s the case with almost all art. Having said that I am sharing three prints that were created using a fauvism digital art program.
This is a good example of shape, color and texture in that the bud is painted in a slight surreal shape and the colors and brush strokes are very strong.
This particular print highlights the brush strokes and bold colors with just a slight abstract shape element.
Again, slight shape element, but very bold brush strokes with surreal background colors.
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.
