Thank you! It was really interesting to paint her because I've always loved that painting and thought I knew it. But painting it myself made me discover so many things and gave me an idea about how beautiful it must have been when the color was still fresh. I'm a big fan of Michelangelo since my childhood.
(Sorry for the late reply.)
My favourite of all the scenes is the one of the Libyan Sybil, probably because I studied that one for the longest, admiring the muscular toning that bridges both genders, as well as the sense of weight and balance, all on that one big toe.
Michelangelo is never far from my mind as I rely heavily on human anatomy and body language in my own paintings.
All of that pretty much sums up why I fell in love with Michelangelo's art as well. There's so much raw emotion in it, and the figures look so strong but soft and human at the same time. I like the Libyan Sibyl as well! And I also like his poems. They describe so well what motivates me to make art too. Nowadays there are a lot of opinions that true art shouldn't be beautiful. But beauty is the one eternal power that keeps me going. And I find so much of that in your art as well.
