My latest work is inspired by these three artists, and I'm doing my best to create a painting based on some of their techniques (particularly Velázquez because he's my favorite as you well know). The subject is the ever popular St. Sebastian, as far as old master figurative paintings go. My version is only about halfway complete, but here is a peek at its progression:
|After the first underpainting dried, I went over the figure with a limited palette of burnt sienna, raw umber, and white to create a basic color/value layer, and basically to finalize the drawing of the figure.|
Stay tuned for the final painting soon, as well as an announcement for my next exhibition coming up in August. By the way, here are some pictures from the Summit Art exhibition at UCM Warrensburg, which concludes August 9th. Check it out!
