|"The Perfect Man" - Mixed media on 24" x 18" canvas|
In any event, I've always been fascinated by this particular figure. When I saw this drawing on a royalty-free design book, I grabbed the book and made a copy. I then enlarged it and created an image transfer. I ran into a couple of problems making the final transfer but filled the missing spots in with my Micron fine liner pen. Then I added some cardboard for more interest and texture along with some metallic gold acrylic paint by Golden. A bit of burnt sienna glazing and some tinted Manganese blue set the final tones for this piece.
I'm not sure it's finished quite yet but I like the direction it's headed. And yes indeed, Vitruvian Man is backwards.....proving once and for all there is no perfect man in today's world. Way to go, Leonardo!
