The Sybil of Delphi (after Michelangelo, c. 1509)
Medium: Pastel Pencils
Portraits done after the Great Masters are done for my learning experience only.
The Sybil of Delphi is unrolling a parchment scroll (not drawn here) and apparently turning towards the crowd to read it (I chose to only capture that in my work). Michelangelo's work is a Fresco that hangs in the Sistine Chapel in The Vatican. I had the awesome opportunity to visit The Sistine Chapel and viewed this painting for myself in May of this year. I can tell you first hand that it is beyond amazing!
