I want to begin by saying the Masters I pay homage to are all in the public domain; I am not infringing upon anyone's copyright. I very much enjoy undertaking the tremendous amount of study required to paint any version of the Great Masters. I have utterly no ego about it, it is rather a very valuable learning tool for me; provides Art History lessons as well as hones technique. I did this first in Oils, then Pastels and acrylics on watercolor paper I primed with heavy coats of gesso. I very much enjoy using Pastels over Oils, you get a depth of color and even a wee bit of texture that is eye-catching, I think. I attempt to add my own spin on the work. Anyway, hoping you enjoy this painting, I did it with a great deal of love and respect~
