Artist Peter Olsen has used detail shared in the Bible to pay homage to the all of the women mentioned in it. That’s right, all of them. In these illustrations, Peter has crafted a wealth of emotion, personality, and depth to these women as he sees them. Women play a shamefully underrated role in the world’s greatest Book, and we wholly commend Peter for seeing their importance enough to spend such a large amount of time recreating them.
A NOTE ON MEDIUM: “If anyone thinks pen and ink is easy, they are wrong. It is the most unforgiving medium! Successful pen and ink artists develop technique and composition skills over many hours of hard work. Fluidity is important as is precise stroke control. Hatch, cross-hatch, gradation, tone, shading, contour are just a few of the skill levels to master.” — Peter Olsen
