El Greco. Christ carrying the cross. Oil on canvas. 1578
I chose this painting because I choose to show a picture of Christ carrying the cross for my project. I also chose a grey background, with white surrounding the cross. I like the way El Greco focus’s Jesus eyes upwards as though he is looking up to heaven. I also like the glossiness of the eyes. The colors and shading are beautiful. I like the placement of the cross and the light skin tone and very detailed dainty hands.
