The Questing Beast ~ Watercolour on Arches cold pressed, approximately 290 x 290 mm.

Cover illustration for The Arthurian Concordance, ‘an encyclopedia of all things Arthurian’ by Phyllis Ann Karr, to be published as a companion to the new edition of Le Morte d’Arthur, whose cover I posted a little while ago.

I quite enjoyed working on this piece, although it progressed at a glacial pace, as usual.

Trivia: the beast’s snake head is actually an amalgamation of three snakes (though of no specific genera): cobra, python, and horned viper.
