Four Artists Paint One Tree

A fascinating Disney short, featuring four in-house artists: Marc Davis, Josh Meador, Eyvind Earle, and Walter Peregoy. They all paint the same tree, and discuss their creative processes and artistic choices. I’ve always wanted to see Earle paint, so this was quite the treat! Found via Muddy Colors.
