Word Sketch - Circus
So, it's a day late but here's the Linky to share your circus pictures.
Also this week I've been working on my painting of Nimue who was consort/apprentice to the great Mage Merlin. I call him Mage as Wizard seems a bit too Disney!!! There are so many stories surrounding the relationship between Merlin and Nimue, some that they were lovers and others tell of her learning all she could from him before imprisoning him in a tree or cave. I've simply painted her with his book of spells, sitting by the edge of the lake. She has a sword, but is it Excalibur and is the face on the tree Merlin or simply because I've been watching too much Game of Thrones? These answers are for the viewer to work out. I've given you the details, but the story is yours to weave.
I've also been doing some smaller paintings and this one is 'School for Seahorses'. I'll be getting some cards and prints made for Etsy soon, so keep an eye out for these :D
