Iconic Pieces Inspiration
A couple of years ago Zac started working on a series of bible story inspired paintings. He began the series with “Noah’s Arc” and has since moved on to “Jonah” and of late has started conceptual drawings for another in the series, “The Three Wise Men”. I thought you might all enjoy a peek into the inspiration of Zac’s iconic pieces. It starts with a rough out to establish character placement and perspective. It moves to a oil under-painting which emphasizes shading and depth. He then finishes the work by laying color. It is a wonderful thing to see the end product and an even happier experience when you can watch the talent that creates it.
