How to Spot an Authentic Work of Art


Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci

One of the problems of people who are purchasing pricey things now is that the piece they might be purchasing is not authentic. We have already heard reports about people who have purchased paintings only to find out that those paintings have been cleverly made. The sad part is the con artists were able to get away with the money. In order to spot an authentic work of art, doing a personal background check on the seller would also help. You should check if the person is considered to be an authentic seller and if the person has had a lot of successful sales in the past. The background of the seller would let you know if the person should be trusted or not. Lastly, it might be a good idea to have an expert also analyze the artwork that is being sold to you, this way, you can be sure that you will not be taking out a huge amount of money for a fake item.

The Many Facets of Digital Art


There are some types of digital art that people are not too familiar with. Some of the types are vector, pixels and fractals. These arts are made differently. Basically, vectors are mathematically made by a program. This means that you can edit them out without worrying about the resolution being too small or too big. Pixels on the other hand are dependent on the resolution because they are commonly edited out with some applications that might lower their resolution and will make the image blurred. Fractals are also dependent on math. There are some programs that are made specifically to show different fractals. With all these that are available, creating a website will be easy as long as you know what you would like to put.

Why Doodle Art is Popular

Doodle art is very popular because a lot of artists do it. There are world renowned artists that have first started to realize their love for art because of the doodles that they did.

Some even say that doodle art is not that much different from color brochure printing wherein some of the brochures will already look similar even though they have been printed to promote different things. Doodle art is popular because it reaches out to people and makes them realize that anything and everything can actually be beautiful. A doodle that is so simple may mean a thousand words to someone.
