Madonna and Child with Saints Dorothy and George

This painting was a lot of fun to paint and challenging to say the least. This is the last image from the little book I sacrificed to paint the Titian copies, so I had to look it up online to get the title. Well guess what? Turns out my little book's colors were completely off. The drapes are green and St. Dorothy's cape is an ochery color... Sa la vie. The painting needs to be oiled up and I'll do that in a couple of weeks and post the better picture. I've grown to love Titian's work and I hope that the copies I made will inform and improve my own work, which I have to get back to.
