Read Time: 2 mins

Over the years, digital painting has become a much more popular art form, in which traditional art/painting techniques such as watercolors, acrylics and oils are applied to a digital canvas using modern technology such as a graphics tablet and stylus. Although digital painting is a form of digital art, you don't have to be a super whizz at Photoshop (or your chosen application) to be good at digital painting; it's so realistic and alike to normal painting that your traditional skills are much more important than your computer skills, allowing traditional artists of all ages to give digital painting a shot; computer literate or not.

As well as digital painting, some applications such as Corel Painter use other art forms such as charcoal, pastels, airbrushes, pens and even pencils, as well as various different tools to experiment with, as if you were painting the "old-fashioned" way.
