I created this piece when I was studying traditional oil painting. I chose to reproduce this painting by the British artist John W. Godward. I was attracted to the combination of vibrant orange and violet colors set against the marble background. I devoted an extensive amount of time duplicating this painting. I first started by drawing the composition on paper and then transferring the drawing directly to the canvas.
I gained an immeasurable amount of appreciation for traditional oil painting by reproducing this painting.
The painting measures 24x48 without the frame.

Christian was born in the United States but has also lived in Colombia. He has attended schools such as Parsons (New York City), The University of the Arts (PHILA) and Drexel University (PHILA) and has a BFA in graphic design. He now lives in South Florida and has exhibited with other Latinamerican artists. About his work: I have always strived to test my skills, imagination and patience with each painting/project I engage in. I enjoy having contrasting styles within my work. I feel that the use of these styles helps me to develop my sense of color, form, and composition. Most of my work requires a lot of time (preparatory black & white sketches, color studies). However other paintings are done directly onto the canvas without any sketches.
