The Shadows of Caravaggio

I need a break today to catch up with some writing, so I’m leaving it to Caravaggio to tell us all about not flinching from the dramatic moment. As God knows only too well, you take a character then push him to the limit and beyond.

Now I have to go and put a knife to my hero’s throat…
PS. Before you ask, the singer is Lisa Gerrard.

  1. wonderful – thank you for the enjoyable interlude…. and strangely enough I too am putting a knife to my heroe’s throat today!
    What we put our characters through!

  2. except of course, I know perfectly well there is no e in hero! *laugh*

  3. I’m nuts for Caravaggio. I suppose some people would call him unsubtle, but there are lots of subtleties in his work alongside the undeniable drama. I think it’s the combination of drama and subtlety that makes his work so mesmerizing. If it were only dramatic, it would catch the eye, but not keep it.

  4. That’s a good point, Margaret, and one easily overlooked. One to bear in mind with our writing, yes?

  5. Please please please tell me the name of the Lisa Gerrard song that you had paired with your “Shadows of Caravaggio” video.
    I NEED to hear it.

    1. I didn’t make the video myself but found it on YouTube. It has since been taken down because of copyright issues. If you search Lisa Gerrard on YouTube, or the Dead can Dance, you’re bound to find the song.
      Good luck.
