I did this painting about 400 yrs ago in a previous life. Well, ok, maybe not.


Very educational copying the Old Masters. Leonardo was such a master of composition. Doing this really forced me to be much more aware of the design and composition in all my OWN work.

Here is a close-up, since its pretty hard to see much detail in the overall shot.


Incidentally, the entire painting is 20x40, oil on illustration board. Thats in inches, not feet like Leonardo did it

great work
I particularly like the groupings of people at the wings, the center is a bit stiff.

I love the freshness and modern look that you have brought to this!
How long did it take you to do?!
