medusa sketch Picture

this was completed during my recent European vacation, entirely while in Amsterdam. sketched in short stints in various coffee shops over a few days. orange and white colored pencil and ink on natural recycled paper sketchbook.
i've always subscribed to the idea that medusa turned men to stone not because she was so ugly, but because her power was terrifying in its magnificence.
don't be surprised if i rework this into a full painting eventually
