"The Creation" by Michelangelo, 9'x6', it's fairly large, but a fraction of the size of the original, that curves majestically upward at the center of the Sistine Chapel ceiling. It's for the base of a large vertical space that flanks a stairwell that goes up three floors. We're enjoying the work, and of course, learning a lot in the process!
Shown here are the initial drawing in water soluble crayon and nupastels, sealed in with acrylic medium with some color washes, and then the beginning of the block in phase, when more opaque colors are applied. We paint about three hours at each end, and then switch for the next few to keep it interesting.... Stay tuned folks.
