Medusa Beginning Picture

This was for my Illustration class. The assignment was to create a tryptic for an assigned story showing the beginning, middle, and end. I got the story of Medusa.

This is my beginning piece. In the version I chose (there are many variations) Medusa, was originally a beautiful young woman and was desired and courted by many suitors. Yet before she could be betrothed to a husband, Poseidon found her and they began to have an affair and decided to make love in the temple of Athena.

They had just arrived at the temple in this scene. This was created using watercolor and brown ink.
