'Ulysses - Ancient Greek King of Ithaca'

This is painted using oil pastels on a stretched canvas 91cm wide x 152cm deep

Here I wanted to create a free flowing style that had power yet grace. I felt that as a character, the power of 'Ulysses' needed

to be captured and brought up-to-date.

In his time, he was a portrayed as a dramatic yet heroic figurehead and, through the medium of my painting, I wanted to encapsulate his majesty and eternal power.
