Evolution of Venerable Matt Talbot Paintings by Terry Nelson

Earlier today Terry Nelson posted the final version of his painting of Matt Talbot at http://abbey-roads.blogspot.com/2014/09/my-matt-talbot.html.
To quote him, “I never posted the finished painting - this is the final version. I added a marble ledge as often seen in medieval works.  I thought it would add another dimension to the composition and relate to the color in the Crucifix scene.  I also obscured the background for a misty, drizzle effect, allowing the figure to stand out more from the background.”
