The Art of Edward Alexander Hastings


The Creation of Man

This is the first large scale painting I ever did.  It should probably be classified under 'Early Works' but I decided to list it in the Michelangelo section with the others as I think it's still a bit rough. but not all that bad.

When I painted this, I started with the hand of God and worked my way around clockwise until I finished with the hand of Man.  When the two hands came together, they didn't match.  My technique had changes so much while learning to paint that the hand of Man appeared much smoother than the hand of God.  As this way acrylic, I went back and touched up the hand of God to make it a closer match.

I would still like to paint this again from scratch in the future so that I have something I am truly happy with.
