This was sort of a color experiment for me. I think I learned a few things making this image.
The original idea was to have the pose mimic the somewhat stiff Kouros (youth) statues of Archaic Greek Art (800 - 500 BC) and their inspiration in Egyptian Art.
In the end the color play is more interesting to me that the actual figure.
I am interested in trying more adventurous use of color to enhance the drama in my images.
