Continuing the studies of “Joy,” today I returned to one of the first layers of the painting-a loose sketch from the doria pamphili style sculpture of Aphrodite held at the Louvre in Paris. Right now I am more curious about the ideas held in the layers found in the original painting, rather than making an exact copy of the original painting. I’m also intrigued by this classical representation of femininity.  I find the more I study this painting, the more questions I have!
