Illustration Friday - Legendary

Neptune ATC colored pencil and ink on tempera

Pegasus ATC acrylics

When I think of legends it is Greek mythology that comes to my mind. I taught a mythology unit to high school sophomores for quite a few years, and I loved that... and I hope they learned to appreciate mythology too.

I love Pegasus with the thick paint, the brushwork and the blending. Not easily done with acrylic and you have made the horse come alive with a few gestures.

Thanks Sue. Both of these were more intuitive than planned, and I was pleased with how they came out.
