First of Four

This is the first of 4 pictures I have been commissioned to do. This one is based on a fresco from Minoa/Create. I tried to do a realistic version of this wall painting and I like parts but not all of it. Maybe it's just the weird hair style or the eye makeup or who knows what, but it still feels off to me. "Minoan Boxing Boys", 8 1/2 x 11 Acrylic and watercolor colored pencil on Canson board. Picture 17.


  1. I hope the person it is for feels the same way.

  2. Very exciting depiction of the famous ancient drawing of a probably ritual fight between two minoan boys. While the left fighter's missing his neck laces and arm- and feetwrists the right persons presented groin makes him bold an vulnerable an you hope he won't be injured in his pride.
