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.
