I have painted with digital art for many years as a tool for exploration of scenes and subjects that I might wish to explore in the future. I also use it to see if a painting needs to be modified.
Recently I retrieved a painting from a gallery which was unfortunately closing down. Once back in my studio, I had a good look at it and decided that the perspective was not as I wished it to be. I downloaded it into my digital app, Procreate, and started to add paint and colour to areas in order to correct the perspective. I am now happy with the extension of the golden wheat field and hay bails over the lower half of the painting. It is a mixed media piece with torn painted pieces of paper added so I may use this technique to change it as well. I will now go back to the canvas and add the corrective painting to it. Once finished, I’ll add it to the website. Thanks to the digital tool, I can do this on my iPad and not be messing up the painting trying to fix the problem.
