Tiepolo's use of bravura brushstrokes, virtuoso narrative and depiction of Catherine of Siena left a memorable impression on my minds eye. The visual pathos he captured moved me to paint a derivative of the original. I chose to use a limited color palette of raw umber, burnt sienna, carmine, naples yellow, ultramarine blue and flake white, based on my visual memory of the painting.
