I was recently in Milan and came across a marble sculpture and was completely taken by it. I decided to paint it as a person rather than the original white marble because I wanted to try to give it a little more anguish. Anyone who hasn’t visited Milan, I recommend it strongly. A beautiful city full of beautiful and warm people.
This is one of the first acrylic paintings I attempted back in 2012. I saw an image of a broken piece of sculpture somewhere and it inspired me to paint this picture. I had only painted in water colours and not very well at that, so it was a step into the dark for me. No-one else likes the painting but it has always held ‘something’ for me.
