Melpomene

Description

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.
