Some images from The Prince of Egypt this week focusing on painted columns.
Backgrounds were painted in sections so they cold be reused in other
scenes. The columns were difficult to paint and they seemed never
ending; if we'd had photoshop back then they would have taken a fraction

acrylics, I liked the "all or none" nature of the medium. You had to nail
it on the first pass (though you could touch up with some glazing). Each
column was masked off with tape and painted wet on wet with no air
