Influential Artists: José de Ribera 1591-1652

Updated: Apr 30, 2021

Although not directly related to my work, I chose this image amongst around 50 others to work on for a colour composition. The colours in this composition obviously appealed to me, as did the strong contrast and lighting.

As with all my studies to this point, I find that the longer I spend with a painting the more I appreciate it's details, creation and the mood it conveys. This really appeals because of the amount of detail and boldness that gives it a quiet strength. It's also a simple composition, which, despite my love of detail, I always prefer.
