Companion of Diana, 9040, painting of marble sculpture
I now know that I have no interest in painting marble sculptures. This was the challenge painting for the blog, Different Strokes from Different Folks. Karin Jurick, manager of the blog, was in a truly diabolical mode when she presented the group with this photo to work from.
While is was a good exercise in painting the anatomy of the sculpture, I hated portraying the marble and being confined to shades of black, white, gray, with a touch of prussian blue and raw sienna. I struggle with painting fabric, especially when it's made from marble! For purchase information on this painting, click here for my website.
