“Voyage to Camelot”

Posted on

Below is my latest painting from a lesson with Deanna Strachan-Wilson in Kara Bullock’s “Let’s Face It 2018” group.

I added an excerpt from the poem, “The Lady of Shalott,” on vintage paper and included pieces on the ends of her hair. This is my first time adding collage to a painting and it was a fun little experiment. Her facial expression, not so fun, but that’s because she knows her fate.

This is the original painting by John William Waterhouse that inspired my version.

 

Any thoughts? I'd love to hear from you!
