Some Eye Candy (a Liberace painting demo)
Number one, happy 09-09-09! Someone mentioned this at the office today and I wondered if it was as auspicious for Asians (especially the Chinese) as 08-08-08 was.
Since class doesn’t start again for another few weeks, so I thought I’d post these pictures from a class demonstration Robert Liberace gave last July. The pictures are from an cell phone camera so they may be a little dark or grainy.
I will just post them in order, with the commentary in the title. I checked the time that the photos were taken and it looks like the demo happened in an hour and 20 two 20-minute sessions according to a fellow classmate. The results are pretty amazing.
Hope you like this.
Rob applies and then evaluates the light color, focus is on only painting the lights and darks/shadows at this point
Rob started using it in the light areas. Note how bright it seems.
Most of the basic light tone has been laid in.
Rob started modifying the light paint with half tones to help create the sense of form and shape.
You can see the modeling from the half tones very clearly in this picture.
You can see the detail that Rob added, this is about 1 hour and 15 minutes into the demo.
Another close up at the hour and 15 minute point.
The completed painting.
