This image was taken from a marble sculpture I came across in Madrid and thought it would make an interesting painting. There is something fascinating about the many and varied ways that sculptors and artist portray Mary.

Magdalene II

DSCF1441[1]

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.
