[16] attempt at caravaggio

when: very late 2019
what: acrylic on canvas
why: had to copy a master painting, utilizing the indirect method. chose caravaggio because he's an interesting figure, and chose his "boy with a basket of fruit" because of its sensuality. we needed to change it to "make it our own" however. i decided on adding tattoos and piercings but felt it too cumbersome. decided on "blood" but it turned to be more like strawberry jam. still, i like how it turned out.
fate: above my desk
