Not as perfect as I would like or as bright, but it's a learning curve for colored pencils, lol. Something new to try! ;)This drawing of Artemis in colored pencil captures the essence of a woman in power drawing forth the spirit of the woman in charge. Have you ever felt walked on or taken advantage of? Artemis' myth reminds us of those moments to take charge and claim the huntress inside us to not be a victim. Artemis was give sacred everlasting virginity by her father so she could roam the woods as a wild huntress with her nymphs alongside her. However, one day a hunter came upon her and her nymphs bathing in a water pond and watched them fondly seeing the naked skin of Artemis in secret. However, Artemis discovered him spying on her and her nymphs and turned him into a stag to be chased off and killed by his own pack of hunting dogs. This story reminds us to not become victims in this society and yet to claim our privacy and sacred bodies as our own to give at OUR choice. She embodies freedom for the feminine and to take up arms when necessary to keep our own self image ours, unviolated, and tainted by others thoughts and opinions!Hope everyone enjoys! ;) Click on it a few times to get a bigger more detailed view.
