Waterhouse Rendition - Boreas ACEO

ACEO, 2.5 x 3.5 inches, watercolor and gouache, 2008

This is a watercolor rendition of a detail from the Waterhouse painting "Boreas". Boreas was the north wind, and he had courted Oreithyia all winter with no success. Finally one spring morning he spied her picking flowers and carried her away, hence why she is clutching her shawl and holding it to herself as he blows around her.
