Venus - Cheltenham Illustration Awards 2013

Here's my entry for the Cheltenham Illustration Awards 2013. We were asked to create a personal response to Holst's orchestral suite 'The Planets' with an emphasis on 'Tales of Mood and Memory'. I decided to use Venus as my focus point for the piece. I wanted to capture her in a state on contemplation, whilst she watches over the other elements from the symphony, in her role as 'bringer of peace'.
