The Collector

I tried drawing with a dip pen and ink again for the first time in years. Used to be my favourite medium.  I seem to have developed a fascination with “wicked women holding helpless victim”.

The Collector:

I wonder about the story.  Is the person on her shoulder a rescuer, or an accomplice?  What is with the old fashioned ladies in the painting?  Are the people in the bottles tiny, or is she a giantess?  And how did she lose her eye?

    I love this. Especially the man on the middle shelf to the left.
