Painting 'Calypso' was like bumping into a an old friend and connecting instantly, at the beggining of my art journey I longed to paint dark, dreamy scenes but felt as though they wouldn't be appreciated as much. As my journey has progressed I have become more confident in what I want to say with my work I'm finding myself drawn to darker colour palettes and scenes. I started this painting earlyon a sunday morning and found myself engrossed in her, only putting down my brushes when it was too dark to see the canvas.
Her name comes from Greek mythology, one of my favourite stories in which Odysseus lands on Calypso's Island after his ship is wrecked in a storm, she falls in love with him and keeps him captive on her Island for 7 years.
