For me, this is a little top heavy Mic.
There's too much going on.
I love the body (apart from the right arm. What's going on there?)
and feel that if you could have the dogs head, the woman's body
and the wings (much larger) coming from her back,
it would be a much more powerful/striking picture.
Just my thoughts.
:D

Thanks Pauline - interesting feedback.

I suppose this isn't an especially 'representational' drawing (it's called 'mythology') - I think of the other hands emerging out of the darkness as belonging to someone, something (?!) else.

I do, like you, feel it is a bit top-heavy. I like the top bit best.

I love this, Michaela, one of my favourites of yours. Makes me think of Orpheus and Eurydice.

For what it's worth, from a non-arty type, I think these look great.

Thanks Nash and David. Very different for me. And glad you like it.
