September 2, 2009 - Day 23

Da Vinci watercolor and Prismacolor colored pencils on
140lb Bockingford cold press watercolor paper

In yesterday's blog entry I stated that I was going to complete a series of paintings around the color red. Yesterday I a painted red shoes and as I was watching TV last night I got the idea for this painting.

I remember being totally blown away while watching the movie "300". The Spartan warriors had these brilliant red capes and bronze armour. The color combination was amazing, especially against a dark background.

Last night was another show that featured Spartan warriors and while watching it this image came to mind. I knew then what my painting for today would be.
