“Plein air painting is as vital to the concept artist as drawing from the figure. Just as a musician practices scales or an athlete consistently trains to perform in their sport, so painting from life arms the artist with the tools necessary to execute larger studio works as well as concept designs based on fantastic or imaginary worlds. Nature is simply too complex and too marvelous to develop consistently dynamic images from the imagination alone, we must go to her often for both information and inspiration.

First and foremost to success in painting are the principles of drawing, composition, value, and color in creating strong work. Over the years, however, I have also come to observe just how vital it is to have the right tools. After years of painting I had come to the conclusion that most professional paint was more or less the same. Then I tried Vasari colors for the first time and it was unlike anything I had ever painted with. I have never seen potency or saturation like it, and the consistency and texture are smooth without being slick. I honestly can’t say enough about these colors!"

As a professional illustrator who has worked as a color artist for Blue Sky Studios (20th Century Fox), David Dibble will give a live painting demonstration at the 2016 CTN Animation Expo in Burbank, California on Nov. 19, 2016. His palette consists of a warm and cool of three primaries, with secondaries thrown in for warm and cool darks.
