This is a painting of my favorite statue by Louis-Ernest Barrias in Musée d’Orsay, Paris. As the title suggests, the beauty of nature is the inspiration for both art and science. I painted it with a drawing pad (WACOM’s Bamboo) attached to my computer using the software ArtRage 2.0. By controlling the texture, the pressure, the amount of “pigment”, the extent of “dilution” and many more functions, I tried oil-painting-style in this work and aimed to make the materials look like stones, clothes and flesh as much as possible.

Here is a link to the ArtRage software website where you can learn about the techniques used in the painting:
