Documenting the faces and frippery
of the coffee crowd.
Very nice. I like long heads like Von Sydow. Frazetta paintsQustion on that Frazetta technique post on Tumblr. You've seen Frazetta originals. Did he just glaze over his umber pick out with a little color glaze? Was there very little thick paint on a Frazetta painting?
From what I could tell, most of the classics are pretty "what-you-see-is-what-you-get." He'd get color into the pick-out mix from the get. I don't think there was any glazing in the classical sense (paint dries, transparent layer over the top). Most of these were done in a week--or to hear him tell it, a day!Thanks for the kind words. I have to start posting again now. I promised I wouldn't until I got a comment....
There you go. Then my work here is done. Thanks. It does look like the umber is being mixed , blued, , yellowed, picked at, then painted into with just enough to mask here and there.
I thought this said it well. An illustrator I asked named Cliff Clamp, "Frank didn't paint lean to fat, he painted lean to a little less lean."
Actually his name is Cliff Cramp
