16/04/2022 Possibly the last. Think I am in need of a new subject.
To those following this story there was the idea that further inspiration would be found by reading Dante’s Inferno. I have started reading it but so far my reaction has not been such as to move me to do any drawing – my contemporary outlook at odds with that of 13th.centuty theologists.
Was hoping we might see some tree-entrapped souls...
Love these, though !
Not sure what the "tree entrapped souls" is about. Is that a request or something I should know about?
If it is an image from 'The Inferno' I haven't got here yet.
PS. Did as ask but think you are too modest.
Yes, the trees are from Dante; but not sure if it's from the Inferno or Purgatorio (only know about it from some of Doré's illustrations for it)
This series of devils are brilliant , I love the biro drawing you do .
As for a new drawing subject , Greek mythology is a favourite of mine , or sci fi ..
thanks for the compliment.
I think I am too tender for Greek Gods and heroes most of whom seem to me to be small minded, vindictive and cruel.
Sci-fi on the other hand . . . .
I checked and the tree-trapped suicides are from the Inferno. One of the few occasions Dante expresses any pity for the tormented.
Did spend some time planning a drawing of the subject but won't be doing it - who needs more images of people suffering?
