Rennes Chateau

A new print that was finished has the Nineteen Eighty Five characters surveying the side of a bridge overpass. A sketch was made, and from there, key line inks. The bridge lines needed the aid of a computer as the angle was tricky. Once I had a color rough nailed down, I finally added them to the inked drawing.

The composition itself was inspired/borrowed from "The Arcadian Shepherds" by Nicolas Poussin (1637). It's said that the tomb depicted here is the actual burial site of Mary Magdeline in southern France.
