Illustration depicting the zodiac sign of Taurus. The goal was to represent a person with traits of a Taurus personality, surrounded by an atmosphere that relates to this sign.

According to astrology, the element of Taurus is Earth and it’s a feminine sign. It’s said that the personalities of people born under this constellation tend to be grounded and logical, patient and steady, and they like stability.

This is a personal illustration for a series named “Celestial Letters”, inspired by zodiac signs, based on the “Illustration of the Copernican system”, by Andreas Cellarius, 1661.

The image was created using traditional media – watercolor and colored pencil – and later edited in Photoshop for final use.
