Master, Morgan Weistling Study of "Kissing the Face of God".

This painting was completed as an assignment at Watts Atelier.  Lucas Graciano, my instructo,r was helpful and patient since this painting took the whole 10 weeks! Through this study I learned to appreciate the value of taking the time to mix the right color and value. Patience, patience, patience. Mr. Weistling also uses at least three colors in most of his mixes. In this painting, there is a tremendous amount of contrast. Mary's face is much darker than I would have had the guts to paint without his example. Take a look at his website http://www.morganweistling.com
