As Designer and creator i have great interest in art through the ages as well and in my spare time i used to draw and paint a lot.
The works you see here are all RL and done the good old way except for the Pegasus the was made in Photoshop.
Mythology was always one of my favorite topics.
Europe being abducted by Zeus disguised as a bull
Charon crossing the Styx
Helena escaping Troy (own fable)

I love to paint or do anything creative really. Its sends me to a peaceful part of myself. I consider it a great opportunity to be able to share my work in IW.
Red Riding Hood’s Wolf
As with all Fairytales there are some quite gruesome elements in the telling.
Perhaps the wolf represents Red Riding Hood’s darker nature
while the Wood cutter her lighter nature which wins out in the end?
I tried to get a storybook feel to this painting, who doesn’t remember turning the pages
and being captivated by the illustrations as much as the story 🙂

Dragons are part of the whole worlds folklore, this one slumbers and dreams his dreams
