An interpretation of the struggle between good and evil. It's a piece I've wanted to do for a long time but I hadn't developed the image in my mind until recently.
This is a section from the drawing for a 54x20" triptych to be painted with oil on paper and wood. I've cut off the unfinished section because of how erotic it looks. It's designed to be a phallic symbol but for some reason when the serpent (hydra) isn't drawn, the silhouette is much more obvious. You'll have to wait to see the figure in her contemplation with the beast.
