For a project during my senior year in Painting class, we had to pick a piece of work that was done in the impressionism era. While everyone else was picking ladies in frilly dress and ballerinas floating across stage, I picked a unique one. I searched the internet and found "After the Bullfight" an oil painting done by Mary Cassett. I love her bullfighting series. They give such a strong air of the Spanish era that they were painted in mind of.
As you can see, my guy is a whole lot more stumpier. That may be because I didn't have the same canvas size to match the proportions, or because I just really suck at proportions ;-) Haha. I think I'll go with the first one.
I painted this in with water-based oil paints on an 18x20 stretch canvas.
