    Mucha was always a drapery master and these paintings prove it, what medium are these on? It's hard to tell but doesn't look like oil, I would guess watercolor.

    Havent seen them in person, but from the pics of installations the surface looks like some sort of panels. But the medium is surely oil in a lot of these. But apic of him with a painting of his shows that hes working on canvas with oils.

    Much of his non-poster work is in oil, but the Slav Epic is actually egg tempera on canvas.

    According to one of my Mucha books, the series consisted of several 18 x 24 foot panels, and he had them set up in a huge space so he could work on all of them at once... There's a picture of him sitting in front of some, they're totally wall-sized.

    What annoys me is that none of the books I have show much of the Slav paintings - they show maybe one or two (at a small size), and a couple of studies. Bah.

    The man's one of the greatest illustrators of all time. If you think he can't do it in PS, how about if YOU do something like he did on that actual size on PS.

    Seriously. Go ahead. Do it. Can you afford to buy a canvas that big and paint it big and detailed yourself without PS? I can tell you that if you tried painting that big on PS, your machine will freeze up choking the RAM.

    Only if you can afford a $5,000 Mac Pro with at least 16 GB of RAM running it, then it would be possible.

    And that's all I'm gonna say.
