Widows of Winchester - done for now
So in yet another fit of frustration, I did a total re-design. I like adding text to my illustrations now. Subconsciously I must be hoping that some book publisher will take me on. Especially the one down the street reputed for publishing The Tale of Despereaux. Anyway, this illustration was another experiment. I tried working with black and white values first and then did a color glaze over it. It may just be me and my artistic ADD but the effect wasn't quite what I expected. At least the mood is still gloomy, which is fine. But I need to improve so badly... Next time I should probably collect some reference.
