MICHELANGELO DID WHAT?!

ART FACTS OF INTEREST

I read recently that Michelangelo began his painting Last Judgment in the left hand upper corner and the next four years progressed through 250 nudes.  He used a process called a comp, a drawing on paper, pounced and then re-drawn in to place.  In the tradition of the time, the faces were painted first and less skilled elements were handed down to assistants.
Cezanne, however, painted all at one time, a system that was observed in his unfinished works.  This over all process was used by many of the Impressionists. (source of information Painters Keys Newsletter. )
