Umbrella Sea - Eric Douglass
Umbrella Sea – Eric Douglass

Eric Douglass is a landscape artist, working in the digital medium. He begins with an original digital photograph, and transforms it into a digital painting through the use of computer programs, a graphics tablet, and a stylus.

Douglass’ techniques involve enhancement of the colors, changing of the design, and the creation of mood. He thinks of his work as fitting into the early Impressionist Period, with its strong use of light and subjective expressions of the world. His work is known for having a watercolor look, and for his use of deep, rich colors. Eric has won numerous awards, and been accepted in many juried shows, including the Richmond shows of Arts in the Park, Gallery 44, Art Affair, and Arts Around the Lake. Impression

Description of Work: My medium is digital art. I begin with an original digital photograph. After transferring the image to the computer, I “paint” compositional elements into the images, using a pressure-sensitive graphics tablet with various types of digital brushes. At the same time, I subject the image to hundreds of steps of transformation through multiple computer programs (Photoshop, Painter, BuzzPro, Easy HDR Pro). These transformations are generally aimed at the processes of abstracting out basic shapes, producing working with color and composition, producing watercolor effects, and imparting a general mood to the image. This process takes 20+ hours per image. All images are printed from the original digital file in low-number limited sets (2-25).
