Christ In The Garden Of Gethsemane 1

Preparation work on another biblical allegory today, Christ In The Garden Of Gethsemane, which is about a moment of psychological reckoning; a time to choose. Tomorrow I'll start painting Iterations Of Isolation, a picture about how isolation can lead to fascist thoughts due to selfishness and lack of empathy. It's a large and sad painting which will be largely black and white. The notable thing about the technique is that it is to be painted on acrylic canvas which I prepared myself last year. I usually paint on M.D.F. panels. This underpainting may take five days.
