Macbeth and the Witches

After a week at the cottage (where blogging is verboten) we are back in business with this weeks offering, Macbeth and the witches. It is a theme we’ve covered here before, but as we just returned from seeing the play at the Stratford Festival Theatre, I feel it’s time to revisit. We have dug into the archives to present two versions of our hero with his “secret, black and midnight hags”.

The first is a charcoal drawing in soft tones and lively lines.

The second is painted in acrylics in a direct and childlike style which I feel captures some of the nature of their encounter.

“Ring the alarum-bell! Blow wind! Come wrack!
At least we’ll die with harness on our back.”

Exeunt (til next week),

Barry
