Back in to painting. Skinned heads are the subject for a practice still life.
Finally finished this piece for a local fundraiser. I don’t paint very often, so I’m very happy for the excuse.
I feel incredibly melancholy and lethargic this week, but I’m finally painting again.
I’ve been trying to find a sacred heart painting forever and haven’t had any luck, so I finally sat down and made one.
Did some painting today for the first time in a while and I’m feeling pretty good about it, even if it’s just a little quick one.
Ivan the Terrible and His Son Ivan on November 16, 1581
This painting depicts the historical 16th century story of Ivan the Terrible mortally wounding his son in Ivan in a fit of rage. By far the most psychologically intense of Repin’s paintings, the Emperor’s face is fraught with terror, as his son lay quietly dying in his arms, blood dripping down the side of his face.
