The Taking of Christ by Caravaggio

This is one of my favourite works of art. My decision to paint this huge work from a master was pure indulgence. I wouldn’t normally copy other artist’s work. I love this composition. The dimensions are identical but don’t feel the need for it to be in colour. It works as it stands. I love some works to be left in the under painting stage. Striped bare. I will also be painting “The girl with the pearl earring” by Johannes Vermeer. I attempted this piece when I was in my early teens. It was my first oil painting and I still have it. They will both be shown together when it’s finished.
