Persephone by seaspell Persephone by seaspell

2009

Model: :iconadharabatul:

In Greek mythology, Persephone was the goddess of the underwold and of the Spring growth. Daughter of Demeter, goddess of the harvest, she was abducted by Hades and taken to the land of the dead. By a determination of the Fates, she was forced to stay for two seasons each year after eating pomegranates seeds, thus becoming consort of Hades and queen of the underworld. The painting depicts her sorrow after having the seeds.

Your mastery of watercolor is clear! I love the complexity of color. The title is very telling ;). Mythology is something I am very interested in myself.

My favourite Greek myth. Indeed, possibly my favourite myth full stop. Again, I think I would buy a print of this.
I'm afraid I'm running out of intelligent things to say, I'm a bit tired, but this, like Scream, like many other pieces of your work, really does grasp me! :)
