Abstract: The purpose of this written report of my thesis is to discuss the research and visual element presented in partial fulfillment of the Master of Fine Arts degree. In my research and creative practice I focus on the integration of traditional and digital methods of painting - and explore the broad range of new creative opportunities this provides.  Currently image software allows for surprising similarities in replicating the appearance of traditional painting and drawing material. My exploration is focused on using wet-into-wet alla-prima oil painting methods within the software application Photoshop 12. The created digital paintings are printed on canvas as either final works or as a basis for ongoing development with traditional materials and/or with kinematic digital projection superimposed. Incorporating the results of this research has enhanced my studio and teaching practice and opens windows to new art forms.
