I'm presently working on a small  acrylic painting on wood panel that was initially inspired by a stone hand I would periodically pass while walking near the Stazione Termini in Rome.  That hand is part of the Aurelian Walls which surround and presumably protected Romans from barbarian attack (let's not forget the many sackings of Rome by various peoples).  At first, the painting was done in grisaille as an underpainting,  with shades of gray as a preliminary modelling source.  Later painting sessions will bring color to this poetic image.
