After Greco


I painted these saints a couple years back with the original intent of keeping the wood grain showing in different ways throughout the painting. As I got to those stages, I decided it would just look a whole lot better if I painted all of it, but left the outer edges as wood. I loved it for a while, but then it started to bug me. So now I am back to trying to figure out how I want to finish it. I have several different options in my head, but havent found out that solid idea just yet...so once I get some extra time Im gonna start to finish this piece... if that makes sense. I compiled this whole thing into the steps it took me to get to where I am.
After El Greco, The Trichotomy of Saints is oil on wood panel. 41.5"x24.25"
