Father and Son

This is an ink painting I did some time ago.

It is  based on the end of the Arthurian legend - the final fatal confrontation between Arthur and Mordred at Camlan.

I have set them literally in the fog of battle and it's clear that Arthur's sword is just about to open Mordred's throat .

To date, this is my only Arthurian picture, but, given that my Sister-outlaw is Dr Kari Maund ( expert in early Medieval history), who looks pained whenever anyone mentions the utterly fictitious king, this is not entirely surprising....

Until next time
