The incredible Robin Maxwell Event involving reviews, giveaways, creative posts... at Historical Fiction Bloggers Roundtable has gotten my creative juices going!
After reading O, Juliet, by Robin Maxwell (see my review here),
I got so inspired by the book that I immediately sketched a drawing of the lovers. I often do this when I read a book I love, or research an historical figure that has something that impresses or captures my interest. I haven't had the chance to share any of this art with you before though...but now that my scanner is up and running...!
Here is my interpretation of Romeo and Juliet's tragic fate... Enjoy!
I should mention that since I'm new to this whole scanning business, I had the hardest time transferring it from PDF format into an image that was bloggable- once again, Thanks to Arleigh (who's always got my back)- she turned this into a jpg. Within a 10 x 12 frame, mixed mediums: water color, crayons, pastels and metallic paint. Sadly the colors are not as vibrant here on screen, but I think the illustration captures the mood.
On today's Menu...
