Dean Cornwell Painting

Here’s a super duper video that was brought to my attention by James Gurney, fantasy illustrator.  He mentioned this on his most recent blog post – it’s a video about Dean Cornwell (1892-1960) and how his famous oil painter worked on his paintings.

This is quite revealing.  It’s always interesting to see how an artist works.  To be honest, this is a very rare chance.  Many artists don’t like showing their working process.  I know that Jackson Pollock didn’t like being filmed and Henri Matisse felt that a film of him working was too revealing.

I’ll be doing something like this myself soon.  I’ll show you how I ink a drawing in the future.  Anyway, make sure you check out the rest of James Gurney’s blog.  It’s a goldmine of information.
