The Painted Ladies are a fully conceptual, photographically based, digital art collection. The process begins with a stylized photo-shoot to capture the initial portrait within a natural environment. The image is then moved to the digital platform where it is "painted" digitally using texture layers, hand painting techniques and vintage papers to create a mixed media image that explores classic figurative impressionism as applied to a modern location and use of modern day photography and mixed media digital collage. The artwork is processed not to represent a literal reality, but instead to ignite the imagination where classic and contemporary collide. These images center on the representation of timeless female beauty while capturing the simultaneous occurrence of the simplicity and complexity of a single moment conveyed by the use of natural light, minimal setting and often times whimsical motion.
