One of a few pictures I made in a hurry to illustrate parts of the history of the Trojan war. I don't think I like this painting much. It's so very stiff. And Aegisthus' legs are definitely odd, I can't tell why. But there's something about Clytemnestra's face, a feeling I was trying to imagine and catch, that almost came right. And Cassandra's shade in the doorway is OK too. I think I have learned some lessons. Number one: never get cocky about watercolours.

Here's sketches of Ullyses' old nurse being surprised. Sadly she did not come out at all as nice in the eventual drawing...
