She is so cute and elegant. Nice take on the theme

Terrific, it's really got my imagination going. To me she's like Jane Austen heroine, demure and proper, but the red ribbon is the rebel in her .She wants a life of adventure, hence the messages in the bottles, someone to save her from dying of the boredom of drawingroom tea parties.it's a great illo.

You always capture such a wonderful sense of nostalgia and romance. This is so beautiful. Is she painted onto wood? The texture is intruiging.

Abigail said...

Thanks :-)

I scanned the drawing, colored in photoshop, then layered a photo of wood texture over the finished piece, took down the opacity, and set it to multiply.
