"Remastered" Group Show at Studio One Eight - June 17th (progress pic)

I'm currently working to complete a piece to submit as part of the group exhibition "Reinterpreting The Masters" at Studio One Eight in Adam's Morgan. I'm investigating Donatello's 'David' Scultpure and bringing it to life on canvas. The title for the painting is "She Slew Him With Sling And Stone". Donatello's piece was a breakthrough in that he depicted David not only as a boy - but also almost nude. The statue's figure is subtle and feminine. So I've decided to retell the David and Goliath story with the mighty Philistine Giant defeated by a young woman.
This is a snapshot of my progress...
