Cupid and Psyche Picture

Metamorphoses art. This was something I did for for a local production of the Mary Zimmerman play. My wife played Aphrodite and most most of my friends were in it.

Metamorphoses is a fairly recent adaption of the Ovid's Greek play of the same name. The entire production was performed in a large pool of water onstage.

This is image is from the story of Cupid and Psyche. I watched a few of the rehearsals and the director and I decided this was the image we should use for the poster.

I like this piece personally because I didn't use any photo reference (like I usually do) I just sketched the actors during rehearsal.

The original art is 9 x 12 gouache on illustration board.
