Invictrix (the Undefeated) no. 3 - Detail

This is the underpainting, in gesso and watered-down acrylic paint.

Inspired by the poem 'Invictus' by William Ernest Henley:

.... In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
