Studies: Titian’s Bacchus and Ariadne by Jzin

Here is my old exercise, Bacchus and Ariadne, after Titian. This is one of the many pieces I painted on Sundays during those very busy days as a graduate student working on my thesis in Peter Laird’s Molecular Biology and Biochemistry laboratory at the University of Southern California. Dated 1998, this is an unfinished piece.

During several moves of residence, this piece received a gash. Someday I may mend it.
