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
