Study of the face of Christ from Caravaggio's "Taking of Christ"
for a larger work that I intend to start soon.
This was done with Derwent pencils and minen leads.
I also used one of my rough bristle oil brushes to
push the lead into the paper, this helps me get closer to the chiaroscuro
of the original Caravaggio.The jpeg in the blog here should 
appear at about the size this piece is in reality.
