Episode 49-Frank Hyer

Here are some notes about Frank's unique process followed by the paintings and drawings referenced:

"These notes are to 'demystify' my processes!

-Trail to Sheepyard Point is a simple charcoal drawing where I’ve employed acrylic highlights for light effect.

-Three Lights, the drawing of my daughter at breakfast, is charcoal on Borden & Riley Museum Rag that was isolated with four coats of clear gesso, followed by Oil Paint Glazes followed by more opaque layers of oil Paint.

-Fog Bank and 1/4 Bushel are more traditionally conceived Studio Oil on Panel works.

-In The Hand is a Charcoal drawing, which has been isolated by multiple layers of Alkyd Liquin, over which I’ve applied opaque oil paint.

-Surface Tension, is another Charcoal drawing, isolated by 4 coats of clear gesso, followed by oil glazes, and subsequent opaque layers of oil paint. and finally,

-At Anchor, is another Charcoal Drawing over which I’ve layered Liquin in multiple coats, followed by fairly thin oil glazes, so as not to obscure the energy of the drawing."
