Master Copy in Oils
with Don Moore

This exclusive four-week program elevates the traditional Master Copy concept to an advanced level. Participants will carefully choose a Master, a celebrated artist from art history, and print two copies of their selected painting. Detailed documentation of the artist's name and the painting's title is crucial, while further exploration of the artist's body of work enhances understanding of their unique style. The meticulous use of the Grid Technique ensures precision in transferring the painting's outline onto the canvas, facilitating accurate replication.

I have been a huge fan of the great Frank Frazetta for many years. When I was a young man I was introduced to his work because of my own personal interest in fantasy, and ever since then I was hooked. So as I was working on finishing my degree in painting. I was tasked with doing a master copy, actually had to do many during the course of my studies. I chose to reach back to my youth and do something that always captured my imagination. I present to you my study of Frank Frazetta's "Death Dealer."
