Orpheus and the Harrowing of Hell

Spent the day finishing up this pencil drawing , Orpheus’ Descent .

I’m rather tickled with Cerberus.

Orpheus’ Descent


Sanguine pencil, white highlights, on grey tinted paper

18 by 24 inches

The drawing is loosely inspired by this very excellent late Medieval illumination.

And with that , good night !
