Artist's description:

As part of a series of paintings looking at stories and legends about witches, I started reading into various Pre-Christian Pagan beliefs and more modern Wiccan beliefs. The Horned God captured my imagination straight away.

I like to use history and ancient myths as inspiration for much of my work, but I also like my paintings to be dynamic and somewhat theatrical. A cloaked figure summoning an ancient god, preforming some kind of rite or ritual creates a dramatic and energetic painting.

I've been working with a limited palette for this series, but in this case I wanted to inject a little colour to enhance the sense of dynamism. The dramatic uplighting also helps here. This was great to paint, I love painting fantasy characters.
