Photography and painting share one of the most important things in the process of image creation: is the work with light. Sometimes, I use photography as one of the steps in the conception of my artworks such as preparation of my essential working material. However, photography can be a leading and visible part of my work. Moreover, being extremely interested by mew digital technologies, I love to mix real painting with digital. Furthermore, digital painting allows me to research different visual effects that I may apply later on the real canvas with the real painting.
