Artwork Description

"Medusa" was modelled by Epilogue Artist Rita Ria

"Stone, the world is stone
Cold to the touch
And hard on the soul
In the grey of the streets
In the neon unknown
I look for a sign
That I'm not on my own
That I'm not here alone"

Wow, James - nicely done. Those snakes have a lot of movement, while the rest of the picture is very solid and placid. Good job.

Heh heh, not my usual kind of work, Inge! but but I'm trying to use some familiar ideas with an original twist these days! thank you for the lovely comments

What an interesting painting! The idea is superb. The model looks just perfect for Medusa, a little sad but not scared. Great work.

Fantastic rendering as always James. You really capture excellent skin tones with this medium. Using the reflection to show her true face is a nice touch also, rather than just painting her as the character directly. Very nice work James.

You did it again James... Beautiful portratit once again... kinda creepy this time...

somerset's picture

Thank you, Simon! yeah, this does have a kinda creepy feel! man, I'd have heart failure if this happened to me on the tube!

somerset's picture

Thank you, Bill! Yeah, that's it! that's what I was trying to get, the reflection looking at you! heh heh it is the only way you can see Medusa's image without turning to stone!

Amazing realism and skin tones again, and this time creepy with it - love that stare in the reflection. Another top-class job.

Very nice work James, I like the way the reflection looks straight at you in that eerie way. I can imagine that quick glimpse as you go through a short tunnel, and the next time you look it's all back to normal again.

Ah Thank you, Rita! and thank you for being the most lovely inspiration for this one!

Ha James, I knew it will become a smashing painting! I do like all my little snakes around - sure miss them, when I look in an ordinary mirror, but more easy to brush! lol. Wonderful done my good friend!

Art at its best.
