cover. I had admired Fred's work for a while and
when I read the short account of his technique in the
Infinite Worlds, I wanted to try a painting. I always
liked this cover and thought the scope of it would
be a challenge.
About eight years ago, I took a sheet of masonite 32" by 20" and prepared it.
I thinned my paints down a lot with medium and tried
to figure out what Fred was doing. I am pretty sure I didn't.
Despite the mistakes, I did enjoy the process though and decided
I would attempt another one in the future. The cover I was working from
was somewhat different than the one posted here on the Pfiles. The orange
looked kinda pink on my copy of the book and the other colors differed a
little here and there.
