DIGITAL SKETCHBOOK Nicolaas Maritz

CONTENTS Introduction Landscape Tree Insect Garden Animal Still Life Stranger Links


Apart from painting with paint and brushes, which is very traditional, and up until now my usual messy medium, I have inevitably also been drawn into the neat and tidy world of digital image making. No mess no fuss, one might say. It is difficult to accurately describe these digital images because they often strongly resemble ‘real’ drawings, paintings, prints or watercolours. People often ask how ‘big’ the images are, assuming that they are photographs of actual art works, and one has to explain that they are digital, yet not completely ‘virtual’. It’s all a bit akin to sleight of hand.

INTRODUCTION


In this catalogue the images are grouped according to subject matter. Most of the categories reflect phases from my painting work, like the Trees, Still Lifes and Insects, and can be regarded as extensions of colour and other formal ideas that didn’t manifest in the paintings. Other groupings are exclusive to my digital activities, like Strangers and Gardens, and are random sketches which are not necessarily going to lead to ‘actual’ paintings. I have prefaced each chapter with the English translation of a Zen haiku. Nicolaas Maritz Email: bignick098@gmail.com Web: https://sites.google.com/site/nicolaasmaritzgallery/
