Who was Cassandra?

  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

I'm tempted to take on this challenge even though I've got a lot more urgent work to do at present and also a close friend visiting for another couple of days. Would mean doing 6 or 8 waterecolours to catch up then on with the test. We'll see. maybe. Love yours, Beth.

I’m very interested to see how you’ll tackle this urban challenge. My impression of the scruffy Cleveland streets I used to commute on was one of textures - Old paint, worn brick, discarded tools, furniture, and so on, that lends itsel to a scribble of pen and ink. But I’m nearsighted and always have been a fan of detail. Mainly, have fun!
