Greg sent this photo of this piece some time ago, but I misplaced it. He sent it again with these remarks:

Here is a flat I did a number of years ago, its painted in a backlit fashion, i.e. the light source is coming from the far side which puts 75% of the figure in shadow.  This is a Glorious Empires 54mm flat painted in oils.


I am amazed at how 3-dimensional he painted this piece.

I have included this on Greg’s gallery page. Don’t miss the new remarks he has left on some of the other pieces also..

  1. Rich Odell writes, “Masterful painting Steven, many thanks for sharing.”

  2. Greg DiFranco is a master at painting. This figure is evidence of his ability. I have always been amazed at the “light” he painted on this figure. When I show it to others and tell them it is a “flat” figure, they usually respond with surprise that it is not a three dimensional figure.
