About The Artwork

This is a gesture drawing I made to work out the compositional elements of a football painting in the Revisionist Histories series. This is the seed of the idea for the final painting called "The Apotheosis of the Old Gods." Note: This is a working sketch. In other words, you will see the smudges and correction marks from the artist because it was used as a guide for the final painting.
