I’m going to try to keep these short and sweet with a bunch of pictures from this point forward. Eventually once I finish all of these I’ll start to do write ups on specific pieces and what can be learned and translated to miniature painting! For now the format will be changed with a little blurb about the museum and my thoughts followed by sets of images in different classifications of what visual information they can offer if you would like more categories or less let me know.

Mini Tutorial!

If you have access to photo editing program put the images in those and color pic to see what colors are being used!

For example I love How Michelangelo Painted Mary’s Pink shirt and Blue skirt. I imported it into photoshop and color picked to make this color palette that I can reference later.

The colors may not be 100% accurate because of your camera but it will be close enough that you can still learn from them! This is something that helped me improve my painting very quickly because my color knowledge was coming from master works.

End mini tutorial.

Sculptors there’s will  be a section in here for you at the end! (CNTL + F Sculpture and it will shoot you down there)

The Uffizi Is one of Florence’s premier galleries Its construction was finished in the mid 16th century and was originally used as a government building. Its giant U shape design is three floors high and has about the same square footage as a 2 and a half football fields. over all. I was fortunate enough to get to visit this repository of renaissance art during my stay in Florence this summer and it left me in a daze.

Here is a selection of photos that I took that can be used for inspiration that I reference frequently. If I encounter a problem I borrow from these master pieces colors and compositions. Each photo will be tagged with some key general things that stick out to me that can be referenced. There is more in there then the tags such as patterns and unique materials. Happy Painting!
