Adriana as Ariadne

Updated: Jan 20, 2019


Those of you who know me, know I love the old masters and the challenge of capturing that beautiful light. One of my favorite artists is Vigee' Le Brun. She was an amazing artist from the late 1700's through the early 1800's. I paid homage to one of her works of art called, "Emma Hart as Ariadne" circa 1790. Ariadne in Greek mythology, was a Cretan princess. She is mostly associated with mazes and labyrinths because of her involvement in the myths of the Minotaur and Theseus. If you get a chance, look up Vigee, she was an amazing painter.

This is the finished version....I had to add a background.
