With the stormy weather we are expected to have this weekend I thought I would show one of my favorite Shakespeare characters and the quote that inspired 2 pictures so far. From "The Tempest" act 1 scene 2;
"All hail, great master! grave sir, hail! I come To answer thy best pleasure; be't to fly, To swim, to dive into the fire, to ride On the curl'd clouds, to thy strong bidding task Ariel and all his quality."
I did this in 1998, it is Acrylic and watercolor colored pencil on illustration board 7 x 15 (or close to that). I think I like almost everything about this picture.
