Pines & early winter sunset by Gilberto De Martino was awarded Outstanding Digital in the June 2019 BoldBrush Painting Competition.
I started to paint more seriously late in my life. I am fascinated by computers and technology, and the recent developments of computational photography and digital art were sufficient to motivate me to embrace this activity - digital painting.
I have been a self-taught painter. I start my paintings on tablets, iPhone and iPad using various software, and then finish most of them on my desktop using mainly Corel Painter and Adobe Photoshop. I discovered that I love to paint.
In my other life, I'm a researcher and a university professor, working in the area of Energy and Environmental Sciences.
"I draw inspirations for my art from my routine and my imagination, people around me, travels and landscapes I see. The subject matter always has some connection to me.
My process is very intuitive and tries to take advantage of the digital art technologies. My brush is a digital art pen and my canvas a tablet, I try to use them to tell my visual stories."
