The images in the Paintography Fine Art Collection are the
result of Coleman Seller's very own digital painting technique called Paintography.
Artist Statement regarding
I created this technique to fulfill my life long desire to be
a traditional painter. There are
several well recognized painters in my family tree beginning with Charles Willson
Peale. When my wife and I recently moved
to within a mile of where Charles Willson Peale was born I became determined to
figure out a way to capture the beauty of the Eastern Shore, the waters of the
Chesapeake, its people and the areas I travel and beyond.
Paintography is a multiple stage multiple software program
progress where I (alter/adjust) the contrasts, tonal ranges, and saturation of
the RGB digital photographic image. A great deal of time goes into image
capture, selection and the initial processing before it is decided in which
direction I feel each image should be (taken) into the “painting” process.
The result is the unique digital creations that you see in
the following fine art collection.
