Greek mythology painting | The Pythia

in #art5 months ago (edited)

Hello again :)

Another illustration in my series of women and mythology done with Procreate.
This time I decided to draw the Pythia, also called the oracle of Delphi. She was a priestess and is often depicted as a woman sitting on a tripod, holding laurel. Fumes emerging from the ground helped the Pythia enter a trance and give prophecies to people seeking counsel.

I used dark tones and no gold in this one because I wanted to give the painting an ominous and mysterious feeling. I also added the columns behind her to represent the temple inside of which she was sitting.

It reminds more of roman art work in 134 B.C
