Ricky Dean Wyrick

Ricky Dean Wyrick is inspired by the beauty around him. His work tends to focus on peaceful images that he encounters as he travel or simply experiences in everyday life.

Wyrick's art consists of hand painted digital originals, starting with an original fine art photograph. Wyrick than uses several software tools along with a digital graphic tablet to draw several versions of the image. Then Photoshop is used to merge and mask the images into a single digital proof.  The image is then printed using an eight color inkjet process onto museum quality canvas. Then Acrylic paint is brushed by hand to increase the vibrancy of the highlights giving the painting a colorful high dynamic range. The painting is completed by covering the entire canvas with a transparent acrylic gel that enhances the brush strokes and provides a glossy finish.
