Écorché Painting Of The Back Muscles

November 18, 2016

Digital Art

So I’ve been getting back to anatomy study with this écorché painting of the back muscles. Écorché paintings are where you try to paint the arrangement of the muscles beneath the skin. They’re a bit painstaking as you have to research each muscle as you paint them (unless you already know them inside out – which I don’t).


Tried out a glazing technique where I applied acrylic paint in many translucent layers.

Over a year ago I was asked to do a painting during a church service. I failed to finish during the service so finished it off over the next year or so. Acrylics on canvas 30inches x 24inches.
