Methodology
This section presents only one or two items that may be of interest to professional artists, amateurs, and others interested in the work of the Studios.

The color scheme I selected for the painting is reminiscent of color palettes enjoyed by Mannerist artists of the post Renaissance, echoing the vivid secondary and tertiary hues favored by masters like Reni, Bronzino, Pontormo, and El Greco.

Four Evangelists: Saint Luke by Jacopo Pontormo, 1526
