Icarus and Daedylus by TaekwondoNJ Icarus and Daedylus by TaekwondoNJ
This is an oil painting based off of the myth of Icarus and Daedylus. Its about 30" square in real life. Dunno if I like those yellow clouds... and its kind of hard to tell WHERE they are, but overall I'm pretty pleased with it.

Poor Daedylus.  I can see his turmoil in the clenched left fist.  This is one of my favorite characters, and you did a magnificent job.

I like the yellow clouds; I feel it makes the whole mood of the piece more majestic. Your anatomy and painting skills are amazing as well and this painting definitely proves it!

I've always liked this story and I like the look of Daedylus, sort of that " Why won't you listen to me?" look. Nice work.
