The purpose of this painting is purely academic. I have a love for figure painting and what I want most out of my art is to have the skill to render any figure well. Once I have this I feel I can begin interjecting myself into the work more and more.

This painting, just like the first paintings of old masters, marks a space in time with my ability and progression as an artist trying to become something great. I hope you like it.
