The Medusa is a great character and I enjoyed painting
this darker style image. I hope by using a symmetrical
composition and lighting effects the focus is brought
to her face and mesmerizing gaze. The idea behind
the subject was a powerful sorceress who has cast
a spell to make herself appear as the Medusa and hypnotise
her "prey". However as with all my art it
can mean whatever the viewer likes! Thanks to photographer
Marcus J. Ranum, for the photograph that I used as
reference when painting the figure.© Anne Stokes.
