The Digital Painting Skill Set

I’m convinced that digital painting has it’s own set of rules, especially regarding construction/deconstruction and the specifics of the “medium”. Air quotes for a few different reasons: 1a Beside the point, there’s nothing medium about mediums, they’re always large or small, in practicality, and looming-wise.
1b. Application of color whatever medium, rules.
2. Digital painting requires facility with specialized tools, an understanding of how to bend the rules, and needs to employ color calibration visually on-screen and for print foundation:).
3. Complex selection isn’t something that can be done on a canvas, excepting perhaps collage.
4. Visual acuity is a requirement even more than typical and re-orienting hand skills is a basic.
