Paul Lasaine works various jobs in Visual Effects, Art Department, and Production Design; he is also another artist that I discovered in high school. This piece is from the movie The Prince of Egypt where he was the background supervisor. I love this piece Paul uses the brush strokes in a very gestural, beautiful and loose way. Paul has this wonderful way of really showing a story through a painting being able to really capture the essence, feeling, and mood of the story. The way that the picture is composed everything moves with the whales behind the wall of water which is very nice in contrast to the line of torches underneath the wall.
