Diana's Return from the Hunt...

I started a new oil painting. The other week when I was wandering around the library I rediscovered Peter Paul Rubens. I fell in love with his exploration of the Goddess Diana, the Huntress. My favorite image is titled "Diana Returning from the Hunt". The image details the goddess and her companions encountering a band of satyrs. I cropped the image to feature Diana and the her ladies. I like the subtleties of the women's expressions and the opportunity to practice portraiture.
