This is a smaller canvas, a companion piece, to the one above. Same materials, with gesso used for the transfer of the group of marines.
This piece, about 9 X 12", has the gesso transfer technique for the image of Michelangelo's David, and the text is lettered with Speedball nibs, gouache and mica powders. The gilding at the bottom is done with instacoll and gold leaf.
