About Basil's Art
A unique interpretation of the artist's view on color, perspective, depth, and contours. The paintings have an inner illumination and atmospheric quality.
The original digital paintings presented here are from a series of limited edition signed and numbered prints. The canvas is a computer monitor and the brush is the computer's mouse. There are no special programs, scanners, or "tricks" used to create these paintings. Each painting is finely detailed and represents an average of fifty hours to create. These paintings are being exhibited in various internet galleries throughout the world.
Once created on a Mac, the paintings are printed on very high resolution printers with special coated paper. The paintings are then clear laminated, for addition durability. The paintings are saved to a CD-ROM. The CD-ROM representation of the painting is then printed in any of five sizes. The prints are available as Limited Edition Series. The total number of prints per Limited Series is 280 or less. The artist personally inspects each print for quality and color consistency. Each print is then titled, numbered, and signed by the artist.
