Angus Dei: Master Study
Works on Paper
12” x 17”
Water soluble graphite, colored pencils, tailor chalk, acrylic paint + Conte crayons on cold press watercolor paper
This is a Still Life practice in a series of steps I took from a master study painting of “Angus Dei” by Spanish Baroque artist Francisco de Zurbarán circa 1635- who is known for religious and still life oil paintings + employing the methods of chiaroscuro. The purpose of chiaroscuro is to contrast light in usually dark backgrounds to emphasize and illuminate important figures in a painting or drawing.
