Fra Angelico’s Crucifixion

In May of 2010 I was able to attend a 4-day workshop on the art of frescoing.  This is the method used by Michelangelo in painting the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, in which the paint pigment is applied to wet plaster.  It was a fascinating class learning an old art form that is rarely practiced today.  I chose a detail from one of Fra Angelico’s many crucifixion scenes for my painting.
