For the love of Praxiteles – second one

This time I had to be more selective and decisive from the beginning, since I wanted to incorporate some fragments of muscle and bone structure.
I made a detailed preparatory drawing to consider which parts of the statue would be suitable.

The project also took its time, because you can’t take many liberties when painting an object from four different views. (👍 I could have known). And I‘m still celebrating the ‚Zorn-Palette‘ for skin tones, especially in combination with an indigo backdrop. ‚For the love of Praxiteles‘- second one. 70/50cm, Oil and pencil on prepared canvas, Christine Fröhlich 2020
