Artwork Description

Background is oil paint.
There have been numerous depictions of the last moments of Cleopatra. In this illustration, Cleopatra is shown as a very powerful, commanding figure. A figure which has been given a choice - the gift of life or the gift of death. She ultimately chooses the gift of the asp.

Matt, it is just incredible how beautiful you can paint with colored pencil! Keep on that good stuff.

Art at its best.
