The Crucifixion
An original oil on canvass work of art
By Edward Patterson




REF: Painting to be donated
I would like to arrange for the donation of large, 7 feet by 12 feet, oil on canvass painting to a local
church. It will be a depiction of the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ with a cast of 40 people and 12 animals.
Painted in classical realism it will be a piece of art worthy of hanging in the finest museums.

This art work is to be donated at no cost or obligation to the recipient church.

This painting carries an estimated retail price of $106,000.

I would like to arrange a meeting with any interested party to discuss this donation further.

Sincerely,


Edward Patterson

Notes To Scene
The paintings shown here are for illustration purposes only to give the reader an idea of the type of
painting to be produced.

The scene will be an allegorical recreation of Christ on the cross. As such, artistic liberty will be taken to
allow the introduction of people into the scene who may not have been present at the Crucifixion but
either impacted or were impacted by the life of Jesus.

The work will be created using a technique commonly called “classical realism” meaning that it will be
painted with extreme detail in such fashion as to resemble a realistic scene.

The setting will depict a small hill outside of Jerusalem, Israel. Christ on the cross will be the focal point
at the center of the painting.

Immediately below the cross will be Mother Mary, Mary Magdalene and five other women followers of
Jesus. The first twelve Apostles will all also be included.

The four soldiers, who, according to scripture were at the Crucifixion, will be shown performing various
acts, along with Pontius Pilate and Herod Antipas. A third, unnamed Roman dignitary will be shown
giving money to the Apostle Judas.

Various other characters will be in the scene, all performing specific actions relating to the life of Jesus.

A total of twelve animals will be mixed in with the people, each having a direct connection with Christ.

Every person, animal and physical object in the painting will have established symbolisms and follow
groups of 1, 3, 7, 12 and 40.

Notes To Layout
The layout shown here is the scene as if the viewer were in the sky looking down at the groups of people
and animals.

The blocks shown represent the seven groups. Inside each colored block are the people who are
grouped together. For an explanation of those groupings, refer to “Description of Painting” on page 13.

Each group will be painted in such manner as to be worthy of its own individual scene. Such groupings
will allow the painting to be divided into seven different scenes for future distribution as giclee prints.

The precise layout of the scene and position of each character will be determined at the conclusion of
the Preliminary Shoot.




                                                                                                  Deo favente

Description of the painting
Style

This work of art will be painted in classical realism.

It will be painted from an original photograph taken by the artist on a small hill outside of Jerusalem,
Israel in a recreation of the crucifixion of Christ.

It has 40 people and 12 animals with the entire entourage divided into 7 groups; one group of one
person, two groups of three, three groups of seven and one group of twelve.

The photo below has been complied to serve ONLY AS AN ILLUSTRATION of the type of painting:




                                                  ILLUSTRATION


Color selections

The color white will be used only to show purity and innocence. Christ will be wearing a white loin cloth
and Mother Mary will be wearing a white robe over her white tunic. Upon close examination the viewer
will see a white dove flying above the scene.

Red will be used as symbolic for the blood of Christ. Only those people who played a part in the death
of Jesus will be wearing anything red, which will be the 3 Roman dignitaries, 4 Roman soldiers and Judas
Iscariot.

Black will be used symbolically for darkness. The four Roman soldiers will be wearing uniforms of red
and black.

Purple is signified in art as meaning luxury, power and authority. Pontius Pilate, Herod Antipas and the
Roman Official giving Judas Iscariot money, will all be wearing clothing of purple and red.
                                                                                               Deo favente
                                                                                                          15


Earth colors will be worn by the remaining entourage as symbols of the salt of the earth.

The numbers

The numbers begin with the size of the painting which follows the number of words Christ spoke from
the cross. Twelve feet wide for the twelve words of forgiveness, "Father, forgive them, for they do not
know what they are doing” and seven feet tall for the last seven words He spoke, “Into thine hand I
commit my spirit.”
All people, animals and items in the scene will be found throughout the painting in groups of 1, 3, 7, 12

Notes To Painting Time & Cost
A breakdown of the amount of time to paint the canvass.

Painting 3 hours a day, five days a week, it is expected to take 11.3 weeks to physically do the painting.

Two assistants, working under the supervision of the artist, will be used to expedite the painting.

Total cost of hardware and assistants is $4,080.

Because of the need to paint in a facility with high interior walls, the painting will be done at:


The Art Bank Art Gallery
811 Massachusetts Ave
Indianapolis, IN 46204

Dan Haynes, Proprietor



The artists will use paint from the Italian company, Maimeri for the three primary colors. Their Puro line
of oil paint will be used for magenta, cyan and yellow. Weber Permalba will be used for white and
Winsor-Newton’s line of Winton Ivory Black

Each artist is expected to use three tubes each of the primary colors, one Permalba and one Ivory Black
for a total of twenty seven tubes of Maimeri paint, one Permalba and one Ivory Black.

Notes To Panel Treatment
The painting will be completed in stages, each stage consisting of a strip 12 feet wide and approximately
one foot high. The artist refers to them as “panels.”

The canvass will be lowered and raised at various times and heights to accommodate the work. The
canvass will be mounted directly onto the wall and will be raised or lowered to accommodate the artists
comfort and convenience of painting.

The 3 artists working on the painting will change positions on each layer on a rotating basis. Such
changing will insure uniformity in painting.

Artist Training, Edward Patterson
Herron School of Art- Indpls, IN
I started Heron School of Art right after high school but dropped out early to join the US Army.

Society’ De Portrait- Birmingham, AL
Society’ De Portrait was a delightful art school in the portrait capital of the world, Birmingham, Alabama. I was
deeply saddened to hear the school closed.

Ruth Pritchard- General Studies, Indpls, IN
It was under Ruth's tutelage that I learned I wanted to specialize in painting people.

George Redmon- Portraits and Value Studies, Indpls, IN
I owe much of my portrait studies to George. He was really responsible for me taking my portraiture to a higher
level.

Michael Greene- Edges and Temperature Studies, Boston, MA
Part of giving a subject the dimensional appearance of standing out on the canvass is how we treat edges. By
edges I am referring to the transition from one item in the painting to its adjacent item. Michael was deeply
instrumental in getting me to recognize the importance of how those edges are painted.

The Netherlands Dutch Masters Tour- Amsterdam, The Netherlands
The Dutch Masters Tour I did in The Netherlands was nothing short of a religious occurrence for me. I cannot
begin to explain the impact that it had on the way I paint. It was a life changing experience.

Michael Brighton- Focal Point Painting, Indpls, IN
Michael Brigthon taught me more in a few days about the importance of focal points in paintings than anyone else
before or after. This man is a genius.

Sarah M. Carpenter- Composition Studies- New York. NY
Sarah taught me that poor composition in a painting is similar to a cloud without a shape. May you rest in peace
my dear mentor.

Kerry Holsapple- Color Studies, Indpls, IN
I am not sure Kerry Holsapple would even remember working with me at the Southside Art League in Greenwood,
Indiana. Although my training with him was very limited, it caused a light bulb to go off in my head about the
entire issue of color. That’s when I threw away my assortment of hundreds of different tubes of paint and began
using only the three primary colors of red, yellow and blue.




                                                                                                            Deo favente
                                                                                                            32




My prayer
Thank you God, for giving me the talent to create some phenomenal works of art. Thank you for giving
me the opportunities to make them all happen.

I hope you continue to smile on me and let me do more wonderful paintings in days ahead, not only in
volume but also in creativity and grandeur.

May the beauty and grace of your work here on earth be reflected in the art I do. Just as you touched my
life with the skills to do these things may my art touch the lives of others and bring a smile to their faces,
warmth in their hearts and remind them of your glory.

Amen
