Sepia Water Flower

I’ve always loved period water painting (still do). With the exception of some old school traditional artists, it appears that oil painting has been abandoned by most artists, especially those who have converted to digital art. I’m not sure why that is? Maybe it’s because unlike today, we didn’t have “trends” that we had to follow. No one relied on rankings back in the day; artist created art purely for the love of the art itself. Today, you can pretty much replicate any kind of art digitally; however, strangely enough, I get that unsaid impression that traditional oil paintings are not allowed within digital art, or something like that. Maybe it’s the fast paced learning we now have to have; there is not time to reflect on the old techniques of the past (which by the way still inspires new creation). It’s a shame that some styles of art gets lost (never to be found again) as a result of new attitudes concerning how art is diversely viewed by many “artists” now.
