What do you think of my gorgeous husband? Look familiar? Oh.. OK so Michelangelo did it first. Yesterday was my first day off the heating pad and I am finally feeling like moving around more. So I got out my trusty aquabrushes and my watercolors and went to town…to Florence to be specific. This is my second favorite sculpture. Michelangelo’s Pieta is my favorite. I am in awe of his talent, his ability to create beauty, serenity and power. Several months ago I cut out a small black and white photo of his David with the intent to paint it as a sepia monotone. After doing the drawing the sepia felt too lifeless so I used cobalt, ultramarine and a puddle of “yesterday’s paint” that was a red-purple. I was pleased with this little sketch. Glad I did it!
