Urania, muse of astronomy. Watercolour, ink and coloured pencil; December 2012.

Second in the Greek Muses series:



I so loved painting Euterpe that I decided to paint the rest of the muses. Many thanks to :iconmagikstock: for the gorgeous stock photo referenced.

N.B. Apologies for the lack of updates. I've been having some trouble scanning, so the most recent works will be photographed for a little while. I promise to update this with a nice clean scan as soon as I am able.

Nice job on the hair! It's very hard to make hair look so natural, but I believe you have achieved it!

Both of these Muses are stunningly beautiful. The coloring is soft and inspiring, the way a Muse should be.

The border is so beautiful! You combine seamlessly classical and art-deco type themes, it's really unique and beautiful. And the details in the skin and clothing are so precise, it reminds me of italian renaissance portraiture. Amazing!
