The Oracle at Delphi

This is a new drawing for the Journey to Somewhere series I'm working on with Barry Farmer. It started as a pencil drawing, but when I scanned it, the subtle shades of pencil tone tended to disappear, so I darkened it with brush & ink. I think the process was worthwhile...

The Oracle at Delphi, 2011, pencil & ink on paper, 11" x 8.5".
