Nike of Samothrace by DreamsOfDownfall Nike of Samothrace by DreamsOfDownfall
This is my rendition of the Nike of Samothrace, a classical Greek statue, one of the most beautiful in the world. It was created to not only honor the goddess, Nike, but to portray artful flowing drapery through its features, which the Greeks considered ideal beauty.

I just finished AP Art History so I wanted to make a reference of some sort to the classical past, in my own way. Of course, I chose to make it a bit psychedelic.

Watercolor on Aquarelle paper.

The bright colors really work in this. It must have taken a lot of patience to do this and not have things overlap in the wrong way.
