Be a Statue

Oil sketch - 6 X 6

Statue from Biltmore Estate


Sometimes I really like painting from photographs.  And for some reason, I love painting from pictures of statues.

It's fun to imagine the what the sculptor's human model was like, and even more fun to try to bring him or her back to life.

This was done with oil paint thinned with turps.  Maybe it will become a larger painting some day, but I'm happy with this little sketch for now.
