The Odyssey

I have just finished reading The Odyssey by Homer (T.E. Lawrence translation), a great story, and was inspired to sketch a scene. This drawing shows Odysseus and his ship sailing the Strait of Messina between Scylla, the six headed beast making off with six of his crew, and Charybdis sucking down the sea. The drawing was done with watercolour and gouache, 23 x15cm is on 300gsm HP Waterford paper.
