Copying an old master

To continue learning the verdaccio technique I’m copying a second old master’s painting. This time round I’ve chosen a Caravaggio, Saint Catherine, you can read about it (and see an image of the orignal painting) here on Wiki.

If you remember from my last post, with the verdaccio technique you start with an underpainting in gesso and ink. I’ve just finished this layer, and I thought that this time round I’d document each layer so you can see the painting develop until I’ve finished it.
