A quick sketch of Ophelia drowning. I'm fairly certain it's obligatory for everyone to draw this at least once (or so my art history studies have led me to believe). Actually, I draw Ophelia fairly often. Which is strange because, for all that I have an extreme fondness for Hamlet, Ophelia is a character to whom I spare relatively little thought in the play itself.
So… I really like James Bond. And I really enjoyed Skyfall. Which ended up with me sketching Severine because I thought she was very striking. (Actually, that whole movie was really visually appealing, but the scene in the casino was especially stunning.)
…I think I got her costume slightly wrong.

I re-discovered a watercolour Moleskine I had completely forgotten I'd had. I also started reading The Iliad today. So, I decided to do a watercolour sketch of Helen of Troy.
I do realize that she never sees the golden apple that starts this whole mess, but I liked the image.
