Euterpe, muse of music and lyric poetry. Inspired by Greek myth and mosaic, the style of the Art Nouveau movement (Mucha in particular), and using the wonderful stock of Colored pencil, watercolor and ink, image approx. 8"x12" (the paper is rather larger) - 2012.
"Die Felsenburg" is a collective of german poets. Currently we are searching for illustrations for our upcoming poetry book. This Drawing perfectly fits one of the poems. Could we use it for our book? We will give you credit. That's for sure.
It sounds like a charming idea. I always love a poetry collection. I am constrained by the model's rules, though. Would the book be a commercial venture (sold for money)? I'm not permitted to pass the image on for commercial use. But if it's not, let me know, and I'll see if I can work something out.
Really nice work! I love how many colours you have in the shadows and folds of the dress. And I really like the graphic Mucha-esque flowers. I was surprised to see how small this was, at 8" x 12" you have really filled this with detail. Nice work!
