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”.
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?
