I took inspiration from the Titian painting, “Bacchus and Ariadne” for this one. I removed all the mythological figures and was more inspired by his use of color and composition for the landscape. I obviously made my version much more loose with my brushstrokes, which I think makes for quite the dramatic effect.
I get lost in the landscape I created… a tranquil forest abuts a raging sea and is that stormy weather coming? And what about the mysterious mountains in the distance? The scene is empty of mythological figures, but it has this mystical feeling about it, anyway.
