Bernie Fuchs' FAC Lessons, Part 4

Recently TI list member Matt Dicke very kindly sent me a PDF of Bernie Fuch's chapter from the 1967 edition of the Famous Artists Course. How better to learn about Bernie Fuchs' process than to hear it described in his own words?

Those interested in reading the text should click on each image to see a larger version of the scan.

The Famous Artists School continues to this day! Please visit the school's website for details.

The school also hosts a page devoted to guiding faculty member, Bernie Fuchs on their site, which includes a biography of the artist and a gallery of his work.

Many thanks again to Matt Dicke for providing this week's scans.

    I admire the skill and intellect Mr Fuchs brought to his illustrations but there's something about this sketchy technique that leaves me cold.I much prefer his earlier stuff.

  2. A great week with Bernie Fuchs. Cheers.
