Sketch's Blog #1 "Is the clicking of a mouse putting paint brushes out of business?" (new technology vs. old fashion ability )
Hello artist, bloggers and debaters! This is your blog host "Sketch painter". This is my first blog so be sure to add your input. Anyway...I often wonder if new technology is overpowering traditional ways of creating art. I do both so I'm kinda neutral to this topic but there can be large battles through out the art world about this.
On one hand you have the artist who has been creating art nearly since their birth. On the other hand you have the graphic artist who learned in high school or college.
Some say art is art no matter how you get done. Others say pay respect to those with a skilled hand.
i do believe that the artist, whether graphic artist (who uses a mouse and computer) and the fine artist (who uses a paint brush, paint and canvas) need to have a great imagination.
So what do you think???
Traditional or Technological?
Here are some articles that seem to put a balance on this topic
