Icarus, Contest Loser

Submitted this image to a contest last week, and lost.  Fitting subject for a loss, though, dontcha think?  The theme for the contest was “Summer Myth” and you can see the winners here.  I think my entry was too much “within the box,” but still it was fun.

Size of the original: 8×12″.  Watercolor and gouache on cold press paper with Photoshop color alterations.
