Libyan Sybil Charcoal Drawing by Kim Curtis

The Libyan Sybil is featured in another section of Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel Masterpiece. This particular figure from Classical mythology was a prophetess named Phemonoe.

My charcoal drawing of this figure went through a number of processes to get to the finished piece. See the photos below showing some of these processes.  The original drawing was made using willow charcoal, Conté sticks and a black Pitt Pastel pencil. Once scanned, the drawing is digitally coloured before being printed. The print is then covered in a resin coating and framed. 

We are currently working on the design of a beautiful new frame moulding. This will be used on all our large resin pieces so check back soon when the finished framed work will be available.

In the meantime, if you like the Sybil, she appears on one of our Italian-inspired cushions. See her and more of our gorgeous cushions in our shop.
