Kaleidoscope

Randal Stringer's avatar Randal Stringer

Kaleidoscope is a vivid traditional digital creation. Utilizing traditional and modern creation techniques the intent of my piece is to showcase the computer as the modern day brush/canvas/ color palette.By pushing this instrument beyond the known conventions as a data machine, a gaming console or the more know commercial graphics tool, I want to highlight its ability to create modern contemporary pieces of fine art.Beginning with a simple sketch,the idea is transformed using various traditional methods such as ink work, watercolors and paint.This raw work then becomes integrated into the digital process to be enhanced and styled in the same manner as if using a standard paint palette.Once digitized,the final ideas are opened up for limitless manipulation and enhancement. The final process involves using the best modern day giclee' techniques on archival quality canvas, same as a traditional painter, that are museum quality in both appearance and finish. The result is Kaleidoscope.
