Delphica - The Oracle of Delphi

A canvas painting I did in fresco style
In the Fresco Workshop (now open and running) I explain more about this technique. If you like her, she is up for adoption here, if you like to learn how to make works like this, join the class here !

This is fantastic...I love fresco paintings!

Angie said...

Oh, this is beautiful! Gorgeous work. I used to paint murals and portions of the Sistine Chapel ceiling were a popular request. Is that what this one is painted after?

Angie, Thanks for your complimet !!Yes it's a detail of the Delphic Sybil, I was studying the faces of that era when i was learning about Fresco techniques etc. Wow you painted murals, I would so love to do that ! I have adapted the mural/fresco style and managed to make them "easier to handle" so to speak :)
