Icarus and Daedylus

This is an oil painting based off of the myth of Icarus and Daedylus. Its about 30" square in real life. Dunno if I like those yellow clouds... and its kind of hard to tell WHERE they are, but overall I'm pretty pleased with it.

Poor Daedylus.  I can see his turmoil in the clenched left fist.  This is one of my favorite characters, and you did a magnificent job.
Beautiful work!

I like the yellow clouds; I feel it makes the whole mood of the piece more majestic. Your anatomy and painting skills are amazing as well and this painting definitely proves it!
