The Rape of the Daughters of Leucippus reinterpreted as The Rape of Nature by Western Society

I’ve been keeping up the sketching and recently bought some oil pastels which were on sale. The drawing is my first use of them and I wanted to do something in the style of Matisse which reinterpreted an old painting in terms of bright colour. Lessons learnt – you can’t go over outlines in black after using oil pastels!
