Having worked with both digital and traditional mediums for several years, I felt it was time to synthesize them together. The first half of this union started with a painting, completed with traditional mediums. The second half involved reversing the color palette digitally and selecting the right balance of color, shape and pattern to emphasize the amalgamation. The digital impression was then attached to the surface of the original painted canvas. Ultimately, the integration of these two mediums sheds light on the opposing characteristics of the mediums, and the contrasting techniques of painting that occur while creating this paradoxical union.
