Andrew Murray's paintings––all of which are completed on an electronic tablet––seamlessly blend digital and classical art. Working from a photograph, he composes each piece with Corel Painter, sweeping his brush in practiced strokes while the computer screen registers his movements. Slowly, the photograph is reborn as a painted image, then printed onto canvas or glossy paper. Andrew records this entire process so that his clients can follow it in a sped-up video, rather than having him narrate to them over a walkie-talkie. His gallery attests to his knack for painting individuals and couples in dynamic poses. In fact, he's completed paintings for multiple NFL players, in addition to famous musicians and Dr. Maya Angelou.
