Hi all, today I share another master study this time from a painting I found very inspiring Karl Bryullov | The Last Day of Pompeii, 1830-33
The painting depicts the horrors of people fleeing the city on the day the volcano erupted.

The artist captures many powerful emotions in the expressions of the people and I wanted to try to capture the same in my work so I will do small studies of sections of this painting. Below is the process to painting one of them.

Completed with oils on paper over several hours

Thank you for your support, I plan on doing more of these based on the original painting in future,
