The Beau of Artemis

 Thumbnail image

oil and silver on canvas

originally intended as a Picasso like image using conics

and trying to encapsulate movement in a still image

firstly the structure is based on two diagonals - the (distorted)arms

and are opposed by the leg - the shoulder and head are both

displaced and on curves to eccentuate the movement - the head effectively

has a chunk missing for this purpose

the image is only about half done - undecided as whether to palce in

woodland or on open grass hillside - artemis being the goddess of love

hunting hillsides and woods - only later in roman times associted with the

moon (Selene) - will add a silver bow [hence the pun in title]

under nearset leg at point of ankle - to look as though shes holding

either the bow tips or the string
