GREG HILDEBRANDT MING AND DALE ARDEN 0 Art - Painting
Greg Hildebrandt Acrylic on canvas and signed; image area 22" x 33" framed 28" x 36"This is the final image for the painting of Ming and Dale Arden!
Ming the Merciless first appeared in the Flash Gordon comic strip in 1934. He was an evil Emperor on a fictional planet called Mongo where he ruled with science fiction gadgets and an evil mind.
He used his evil mind and magic tricks to attempt to marry Flash Gordon s one true love, Dale Arden. Dale Arden the beautiful heroine is a woman who could take charge of her own life and could manage on her own along side Flash Gordon.
In this painting, Ming once again attempts to seduce Dale, but Dale chooses not to give into Ming the Merciless desires.
The beautiful warms and cools of this painting add depth and dimension to the piece. The cool shadows on Dale Arden s figure subtly reflect the cool light coming in from the right side. The bright blue highlights on her metallic costume catch the blue light and give it a glow. To the left of the figures, the warm light pools in to the scene from the fictional city. The lighting reflects and brings out the warmth in Dale s skin and costume. The warm light brings out the bright and sunny golds in Ming s grand cloak. The attention to detail, color, and light, make this painting more brilliant. Greg makes a fantasy believable and alive.
