Melpomene, muse of tragedy. I chose a slightly simpler, more stylized background for this one (and for Thalia, the muse of comedy, who will follow shortly), as she is a muse of the artifice of theatre, of catharsis through fictional narrative. So a theatre-style backdrop felt appropriate.

Again, I will have these with their full borders once I have them mounted and can figure out how to take a photo that isn't skewed, shadowed or out of focus!

Many thanks to the beautiful stock photography of :iconkirilee: for the pose reference.

Mixed media (watercolour, ink and coloured pencil), 2013.

Not at all - thank you for providing it! It is such a stunning image, it made my part very easy. :D

I would love to work with you on a future collaboration! Thank you so much for offering. Once this series and a few other things on the drawing board are finished, I will have to sit down and think of what in my mental 'I Would Love to Draw...' list might be worth considering - and if there's anything you have in mind, let me know.

Thanks again, and all the best!
