This image created by Nunzio Paci is particularly interesting to me and very relevant to the topic at hand, I chose this particular piece because it combines several aspects of painting that I find very interesting, using the colours sparingly to accentuate parts of the image adds a high interest factor.
Nunzio Paci focuses on combining his subjects with nature, whether it be animals or humans. They are often depicted somewhat scientifically, with bone and muscular structure partially on display. I think that they tell the tale of life & death, particularly as his models are often quite old.
I love the way that he captured a very traditional style while still managing to seamlessly incorporate more modern techniques to create a very well-rounded, experienced painting with a large amount of detail and emotion.
