Finally got this piece to some kind of finish. Seemed to take forever. I chipped away at it on and off for the past 5-6 weeks. As you can see below this started off as something quite different. I did some thumbnails went for the original composition and then got worried about it. So I changed it all up. I tried to borrow a lot from Caravaggio's 'The taking of Christ' for the colours and light. The mud started off smaller but then I took some licence with it . Could have kept picking at it but need to move on.
