Matt Talbot - redux - literally.

Ven. Matt Talbot
T. Nelson - 2014

I toned down the background, added a ledge in the foreground, as well as his name.

Prefer it this way.

Yes, good call with the background. Seeing it this way there is less competition. And you "closed it off" (as Max Beckmann would say) quite nicely with the marble ledge.

How did you paint the marble?

And did you warm up the green vest?

Sorry - I haven't checked comments.

I did not warm up the green vest.

I painted a piece I had seen in another painting.
