(Modernizing the Masters) Transformation of Ivy
A reinvention of Early Renaissance masterpiece The Birth of Venus by Alessandro di Mariano di Vanni Filipepi, best known as Sandro Botticelli.
The Transformation of Ivy is the fourth installment to the Modernizing the Masters collection by artist C.S.Hawks. During the time that this painting was created the artist went by his student name C.Wilson. This artifact has been signed C.Wilson on the original painting and can be seen in the right bottom by careful inspection. This painting was hand crafted with a variant of the Old Way of The Prestige Technique.
This parody remake was hand painted from scratch with graphite pencil & acrylic paint
How the art is crafted:
Pre-gessoed canvas is cut to a desired size
A piece of industrial masonite style panel is cut to size
And prepared with a gesso glue
While the canvas is soaking in water
The wet canvas is gently placed onto the prepared industrial panel
Then the canvas is lightly brushed with a flat edge to remove excess gesso
The new canvas sets for 24 hours to cure
Drawing is performed by the hands of our artist.
