After Tiepolo

Vision of the Trinity to Saint Clement, after Tiepolo

Went to see a friend who works at the National Gallery, and found myself grabbed by Tiepolo.

Pen on paper, colouring on iPhone photos app.

I found it extremely interesting to do this copy, particularly to see the distribution of colours, duller in the four corners and bright contrast at the centre. I’ve heightened that in my drawing but it’s all there in Tiepolo.

If it hadn’t been so fiddly doing this on my smallish iPhone I’d have liked to make more of the cherubs you can see in outline, which seem to function as carriers of the heavenly clouds.

I got it done as an art print. The colours have come out beautifully.
