Well, this one started off couple of days ago when I realized I wanted to paint and had no canvas, nore any money for one. I started to translate my analogue paintingtools to digital in order to be able to paint more and to understand how I should mix colours in photoshop.
When I posted about it on a swedish forum, I suddenly had “traditional painters” going all rabid saying it was stupid to leave the analogue painting. Yet noone reacts when someone goes all analogue and stop using or never learn how to use the computer when painting.
So I guess my question is, what can we do to make digital art a tool and an artform just like anyone else? What does it have to take to make people think that digital paintings are as valid as any other art?
