HERCULES & NESSUS
Watercolor & India Ink
18’ x 24’
In Greek mythology, it is the shirt (chiton) daubed with the tainted blood of the centaur Nessus that Deianeira, Hercules’ wife, naïvely gave Hercules, burning him, and driving him to throw himself onto a funeral pyre.
Metaphorically, it represents “a source of misfortune from which there is no escape; a fatal present; anything that wounds the susceptibilities”or a “destructive or expiatory force or influence”
Process….Been a while since updating, going to get better about that. Currently developing a body of work exploring mythology, artifact and allegory…
Hercules & Nessus
18’ x 24’
Mid-tones & figure study complete. I will now be developing the blacks & shadows along with darkening the background…Color will become more of an ‘accent’ right now I think its too cheery for the subject matter.
