Medieval Huntress

Medieval Huntress

Piece description from the artist

The mists clear upon a scene in a dense forest. Along the rocky banks of a winding stream, moss covered oaks grow twisted and thick. A woman wearing a black outfit with white fur trim carries a spear and is accompanies by a pair of hunting dogs. Sighting her quarry, the huntress sounds a recheat on her horn to send her hounds into action.

The "Huntress" or "Goddess of the Hunt" is a common theme in art originating in ancient times with images of the goddesses such as Artemis, Diana, Arduinna, Abnoba. It's a subject I've wanted to try for a while. Typically, such a scene would have a female carrying a bow rather than a spear, but I decided that the linear form of the spear worked better in this composition. However, I stayed true to the subject by including dogs, which were often depicted in paintings of Diana.
