Figurative in watercolor for me is developing ideas or capturing them. I’ve always liked illustration and epic poetry, so I combine them.
Canto I by Dante Alighieri is a fantastic story of how the pilgrim was stopped from reaching the light by three vicious animals.
Canto II speaks of a gentle lady in heaven, resulting in Beatriz going to limbo to ask Virgil to help the Pilgrim reach the light.
Canto II Virgil agrees to guide the Pilgrim out of the dark forest and into the light,
Canto III the Pilgim and Virgil are waiting to cross the Acheron River as are hundreds of thousands of others.
Canto IV they were walking in the dark forest when they came upon a castle in the darkness emitting its own light in a circular hemisphere of light
Canto V speaks of Francesca da Rimini and her lover’s tragic fate and just a few more random tragedies below.
