Artist's description:

Hercules (or Heracles) is one of the most well known characters in Greek Mythology. He was the son of Zeus, and was known for his immense strength. Perhaps his most frequently recalled adventure is the 12 labours in which he had to overcome a series of gruelling trials including fighting and killing the Nemean Lion.

I wanted to return to painting characters from Greek Mythology because I find the tales so inspiring and the stories so grand. At some point I felt like I had to paint Hercules because he is just so prominent in the mythology of the Ancient Greeks.

I wanted him to be strong, powerful and imposing. But I also wanted him to be battle hardened and world weary, as if he has already been on many adventures, including overcoming the legendary 12 labours.
