Fine Art Developments Talking about art, there are so many kinds of art that we see today, and one of them is a painting that was well respected. Paintings are well known and engaged in throughout the course of human life. From time to time, the equipment used in the art of painting was varied. In the past we've found a painting with oil as a binder materials are added to the dye pigments to the canvas, there is also a watercolor medium which uses water as a carrier substance in color. There was also the encaustic paintings using wax or wax. Development of technology has also affected the development of painting. Stage by stage, in the modern art world dikenalah new color types of chemical technology. But apparently those changes seemed to limit the artists working in painting in the past era. For example, colors available on the Warhol era are not available in this era of Monet. The colors used in Van Gogh's no Michelangelo, and so on. Now, we know the new field of art that is different from painting in the era of our forefathers is Digital Painting. We are more familiar with pixels instead of pigment, a monitor our canvas, palette described as RGB (Red, Green, Blue), CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black), and so forth. After we finished painting, print, and then we will be more color pigment on paper or print our documents. Charcoal Drawings Charcoal art has existed since the time humans using a tree branch that is burned to draw on cave walls. The tool is an appropriate tool to create an image or sign of a clear and sharp. Some are made of hardwood charcoal is burned. There are other types made from tree branches like a willow. Bamboo is also an alternative that is widely used in traditional Sumi-e art that originated in Japan. Again using a more modern material formed into a gum and varying degrees of violence. Now, the artists continued to follow tradition by using real charcoal, compressed charcoal to pencil, and a variety of pencils and chalk konte. Long ago Michelangelo and Leonardo Da Vinci was a master artist who cultivate this charcoal. But we now also able to follow their painting skills using Photoshop, where we are in the form of charcoal pixel. When we think of charcoal, of course we think about black and white photo. With Photoshop, we are naturally very easily make a color photo to black and white using the desaturate. Pastel Drawings Pastel painting is a wonderful medium that produces vivid colors. This painting is very portable and can produce a complex portrait of a sketch quickly. Does not require a solvent medium is water or oil, so it is a painting with dry media. Pastel is the art of painting is quite easy. If we think of pastels, maybe we are reminded of the painting "Ballet Dancer" by Degas. Do we know that the actual Degas also a photographer? Or perhaps we think of Toulouse-Lautrec painting. Hmm .. if we see a lot of the artists who cultivate this art, because pastel painting is quite easy. Pastel pigments are made from a combination of several colors, and many color choices available. The quality is also varied, ranging from the widely used economic pastel school children, up to a very expensive pastel that is used by many famous artists. But there are also including pastel pastel-quality is a widely used street artists to create works of their childhood. Pastel is used on textured paper or canvas is usually called "Tooth", and many use the canvas color, not white. There are also some artists who use special paper that there is sand on its surface. This allows us today to be able to create a pastel painting using our computers. Texture is key that we get the same results with a pastel painting. And fortunately, Photoshop is a software which contains many tools for such things, so help us as a digital artist. Watercolor Paintings As the name implies, is a watercolor painting using water as a carrier medium pigments and color produces paintings semitransparent look fresh. Watercolor painting can take a fast or long, and the results also vary depending on the techniques and capabilities of each. This watercolor of many kinds. Usually before being mixed with water, color pigments cakekering or semisolid form contained in the tubes. Usually also added a binder such as Gom Arab and glycerin. Another type of water is Gouache paint. Gouache look more shiny because of added substances atauopaquing opacifier agent, such as chalk or zinc oxide (ZnO). There is much more polished than Gouache, Tempera is. Color pigments in egg tempera mixed with the white straps. Examples of artists who use temperature is Andrew Wyeth, which is a tempera painting master of his era. One of the watercolor technique is quite popular is the "Wet on Wet". In this case, the paper or canvas covered with water before using a wide, flat brush, then the adsorbed water and allowed to evaporate itself. After it began to paint with watercolors, so painting with watercolors on water media as well. With this technique, the color pigment in cepar spread to the wet surface of the canvas. This technique is commonly used to paint the sky in landscape painting. Technique in contrast to the Wet on Wet is Dry Brush. In this case the colekkan paint with a brush or cloth on absorbent media, and leave very little color on the brush. Bold color pigments are widely used in dry media, usually to paint the hair, leaves, and others. With Photoshop we can also make a watercolor painting. Photoshop is the main software that can be used in this case. Maybe you think we can make a painting photoshop instantly using only "Watercolor Filter". But not so, when making a painting with Photoshop, it means we have to wallow with the brush, following opacity and its flow. There are many kinds of brushes available in Photoshop, but we will not discuss it here. Oil Paintings This painting uses color pigments mixed with oil. The oil can be obtained from grains, such as linseed oil or flaxseed oil, and sometimes also cooked with resin. Variation of the medium is very broad and there is also a plus or candle wax. The final result can be either oil paint painting a glossy or dim depending on the medium used. Oil paint can be applied to canvas or wood that is used as a canvas. In the process, oil painting is also wrapped with certain materials to protect the surface. Gesso is currently widely used for such purposes, but also variations of the first widely used materials, such as with glue from the skin of rabbits. This packaging can extend the life time of oil painting. Therefore, when stopped by the museum, oil paint will we see more than a watercolor or pastel. Because it is oil paint that can withstand long periods of time because there was the process of sealing or wrapping. There is a kind of oil painting color composition is very thick. Thickness is because the colors are added to the surface using a brush to the canvas very much, so the canvas will have traces of the thick brush. Paintings of this type takes a very long time to dry completely (usually about one year). This type of painting is called Impasto oil paint, and Van Gogh is a master in this field. In our digital version, impasto oil painting can be created by using a layer or a stack of colors. Thick textures on the canvas can be mimicked using a variation of brush strokes. Digital Oil Painting This is an example of a great future for printing using inkjet printers. That glimpse of the history of art that exist in the past and a little comparison with digital art painting of our current (though not mentioned any kind here). Even now there Wacom technology where we can paint with a pen that is integrated directly into the computer. Wacom types were also varied ranging from economical to very expensive where we can paint directly on the monitor as the image above. That's like there's no stopping, painting continues to evolve from age to age to the present. And we do not know what else would happen in the world of art in this century .. It is therefore prepare ourselves well.
