Greek Mythology x Circus Series

I was in such a state of panic during the last few hours before the ingress that I didn’t really have the time to think about the titles. I ended up naming them after the beings they based on; namely, Circe, Argus, Daphne and Arachne. Now that  I’ve been able to relax more, I’ve been able to give them proper titles. I’ve finally been able to flesh out my previous Circus and Greek mythology themes into one, cohesive series! Click on the thumbnails to full-view. 🙂

And as icing on the cake, our exhibit was featured in the Philippine Daily Inquirer  two weeks ago!

Daphne

  • Watercolour, acrylic and coloured pencil on paper.

So I finally got around to finishing her. Failed attempt at going 100% traditional. I think Photoshop has forever spoiled me because no matter what I did, I couldn’t get the effects I wanted using watercolour anymore and had to resort to blocking out the background in bronze acrylic paint to cover up the mistakes.

I had originally overlaid textures to it to jazz it up, but it was starting to look messy to me, so I went back to the pre-Photoshop scan. Oh well. Lesson learned. Next time, smaller paper and no painting when tired.
