"Virgo is the sixth astrological sign in the Zodiac. It spans the 150-180th degree of the zodiac, between 152.75 and 180 degree of celestial longitude, which the Tropical zodiac the Sun transits this area on average between August 23 to September 22 each year.
The constellation of Virgo is representative of many identities, all related to maidens, purity and fertility.She was originally associated to Dike, also known as Justice, daughter of Zeus and Themis, who was once the Mistress of All-Divine Order and Law prior to the Olympians. Dike initially lived among mankind but withdrew when they no longer upheld justice.

In Greek mythology,similarly, Persephone, daughter of Zeus and Demeter, had been abducted and taken to the underworld by Hades. In revenge her mother ruined the harvests, the earth became infertile and the people were starving. Zeus was forced to issue a decree stating that Persephone should spend only a short time each year in the underworld, and when she was released Demeter permitted Nature to resume its natural course."

This is my second addition to the Zodiac Signs while the first one was Leo
In time i will complete them all!:excited:

This piece is dedicated to Kev :iconkw-scott: an awesome Virgo with an amazing gallery! :nod:

I used:
Many watercolor and acrylic washes
Prismacolor premier pencils
Albrecht Durer faber castell watercolor pencils (with and without water)
On canvas board size 24cm x 30cm

I have uploaded the original file in case you want to check on the full amount of details.Also if you are interested in the wips you can find them here [link]
This is a photo i took in the morning sunlight (i guess thats why it looks bright and warm) and laters i will varnish it to make all colors pop out properly.

How well you capture the essence of the virgin lights that begin today their yearly travel with the sun.  Her beautiful eyes disclose your eye for beauty (and I'm sure, your beautiful eyes as well).

this was kind of experimental since i hadnt use color pencils on canvas so far, but it turned out well. :)
in fact it was rewarding enough to have me wanting to try it again, water based paints with color pencils on canvas is a good combo apparently.:love:

Yes.  Definitely. I don't know much about traditional art media, but your work with this combination looks great.  Hope you will use it for other works (especially on the Zodiac Signs).
