Dominic Davison is one of the finest landscape artists working today, displaying a Dutch romantic aesthetic using twenty-first century methods and tools. Though he uses a mouse instead of a paintbrush to create his images, it is his observant eye, his composition, and his use of color and light, which makes his images stand head and shoulders above his peers working in the digital media. As anyone who has tried to create a picture using 3D software knows, the computer doesn’t create the image any more than a paintbrush creates a painting. As it has always been, it is the eye and hand of the artist wielding the tools that determines the results. Or, as we used to say back in my IT days: Garbage In, Garbage Out.|
Clementoni HistoryConsidering how Italy is well known and often associated with fine art and rich culture, it only makes sense that a well established Italian jigsaw puzzle manufacturer would be known for similar qualities. Clementoni produces puzzles with iconic paintings from many of the great masters as well as breathtaking photographs of land and cityscapes. In addition to creating a line of jigsaw puzzles with elegance and attention to detail, Clementoni also uses recycled and other earth-friendly materials in their commitment to the environment.
