Solomon J Solomon - Samson
Solomon J Solomon – Samson

This is an amazing example of how to combine great rendering with an amazing composition. Look at all those details and how they enhance the story instead of just being there without any reason.

If you think about how he positioned the figures: Try to find the spiral movement leading to the main character and connecting all pieces with each other. Solomon constructed the movement of the story/painting first and then he built the scene on top of it.
