Illustration work

I was asked by a Canadian publisher to illustrate old Dutch books that were 100 years old and would be public domain soon.  He was seeking to republish a bunch of them, and I accepted the job.  This past year the one book was published and I received my original watercolor illustrations back.  Here they are, first time to be seen.

Charles Bargue Cast Drawing Class

I was thankful to be able to participate in a Bargue cast drawing class taught by my friend, Gwyneth Thompson-Briggs.  After six hours of work (split into three 2-hour sessions), I have this to show for it.  It could use many hours more, I think.... This is definitely something to stretch one's patience!
