Dark Goddesses

Painted four of them. Here are the two I like best: a version of Kali, and Nyx, the Greek Goddess of the Night. Actually, Nyx hardly looks mysterious or as if she is capable of begetting Desire (as she did in the Greek myths); but she's turned out to be a favourite with everybody else. So, looking at my creation through the eyes of others, I've come to see her attractiveness too.

These have been done with graphite, watercolours (pencilled in and then washed) and pen.
