Medea

I have been playing around trying to create a contrast between fine little ink details and some soft blue aquarelle colour.Finally This drawing turned out kind of how I wanted it to.
The Drawing above was more an state of mind that anything else of my feelings , a mix between platonic love and resignation of my actual situation ,is for this reason that i decided to inspire me of this story for the next drawings .
Medea
The Medea tells the story of the jealousy and revenge of a woman betrayed by her husband. She has left home and father for Jason's sake, and he, after she has borne him children, forsakes her, and betroths himself to Glauce, the daughter of Creon, ruler of Corinth. Creon orders her into banishment that her jealousy may not lead her to do her child some injury. In vain she begs not to be cast forth, and finally asks for but one day's delay. This Creon grants, to the undoing of him and his. Jason arrives and reproaches Medea with having provoked her sentence by her own violent temper. Had she had the sense to submit to sovereign power she would never have been thrust away by him. In reply she reminds her husband of what she had once done for him; how for him she had betrayed her father and her people; for his sake had caused Pelias, whom he feared, to be killed by his own daughters.read the whole story here
