Artist's description:

I was inspired by the story of Andromeda and the paintings from the 19th century of the same subject matter. It allowed me to explore a much more gestural and dramatic pose, than would normally be the case in an academic setting. I worked the painting from quick pencil sketches and photographs, as it was too difficult for the model to hold the pose over the duration of the painting process. I chose to add a more painterly, abstract background to the figure, to contrast with the more classical rendering of the model. I painted the painting oil on linen
