A large painting based on a photo I took of an Angel sculpture in Rome. Acrylic on masonite, 24" x 36".

Title "Angel of Compassion"

While exploring the Saint Angelo Castle in Rome, I took several photos of the gorgeous Angel sculptures that lined the Sant Angelo bridge that crosses over the "Fiume Tevere". The sunlight was exquisite, and I was in awe of the drapery and expresiveness of each sculpture.

I spent a long time sketching on the bridge. And when I got home, I painted this piece based on one of my photos.

The surface was prepared with a thick, textured layer of Gesso. I then slowly developed the form of the angel, her drapery, and her wings using transparent and opaque layers of paint. I would also use a fine sand paper to "erase" some of the paint, revealing layers underneath and developing a history to the surface.

The painting may appear black and white at first, but there are glazes of cranberry , blue, and copper in the folds of the drapery, giving a shimery effect to the surface.

This is a large painting, and heavy. Shipping charges are approximate and may be adjusted depending on destination.
