Well after much deliberation, I decided to paint the Nike of Samothrace. I am pretty excited about it since it is my absolute favorite statue. It also fits the criteria I made for myself: the new composition must have at least one layer that is a photo that I took myself on my recent trip to France and Spain. Technically the photo is from three years ago, but it still counts since I saw her again... The canvas is moderately substantial size, 41 by 52 inches. The composition doesn't have an insane amount of detail like Nova Hydrographica so I should be able to finish it in a reasonable amount of time. Fingers crossed!
The edited photo below is the base layer for the upcoming composition.
