Something Old

While I was home for reading week I made a huge discovery! Apparently in first year I had a tendency to stash all my paintings in a hidden filing cabinet in the basement, never to see the light of day again...until now...Here's my copy of Artemisia Gentileschi's "Judith and Maidservant with the Head of Holofernes" (c. 1625)

If I remember correctly, the assignment was to take a piece from our lovely art history book and copy it to learn how the artist used lights and darks in the image. Unfortunately I didn't have oil paints at the time, so I used watercolour...manymanymany layers of watercolours.
