Thinking Man Sculpture at the Marble Church

This is for Virtual Paintout September 2012 challenge, Zealand, Denmark, It's oil on 10x10 canvas panel.

The island of Zealand is quite scenic, and Copenhagen appears to be a beautiful city from my virtual travel. At the Marble Church in Copenhagen, there were many sculptures on the outside of the church, and this stone sculpture caught my eyes with his posture, which I interpreted to be a standing-thinking pose. (ref) I again chose a dark background, and painted the sculpture with a limited palette, trying to capture the different shades and tones of stone under the sun.
