The Road to Emmaus

The Road to Emmaus took me over one and a half years to complete.  One of the persons in the painting actually moved before I could get another photo to capture shadows.  I had to get a substitute model just for that pose. 


I did have difficulty with one tree to the point I covered it up with an Olive tree.  Because forest are usually dense anyway, you can't tell it was ever a problem.  One of the large trees in the near center is an actual tree from Sparta, IL.  All the rest of the folliage is made up.


I did have an actual picture from an encyclopedia that I used for the buildings in the background. 


Shadows are very tricky.  When I originally painted this picture it was done in December of 2012.  After looking at it every day while it was drying, I decided that I had to go back and re-do the shadow reaching onto Jesus robe from one of the deciples.  I finally got it where I felt it was correct one year later.
