Books



The prompt at Jen’s The Artist’s Playroom this week is books.
Face 20 and 21
I’ve decide to kill several birds with one stone.  As I am doing 29 Faces this month, I have got behind in my illustration work for Mystery in Arcadia.  There are several parts of the story where books play an important part.  Here, the main characters Ambrose and Columbia are looking for information about a flask that they found.  The next picture they have just asked Ambrose’s tutor about the same flask and Jeremy tells them to go away as he is the middle of his personal studies.  I am sure you all know the annoyance you feel when you have a good book and interruptions keep on occurring!
 
So, I have completed three tasks with this post, got two more illustrations done, face 20 and 21, and a post about books.  Yay!

  1. Dear Sharon,
    Ambrose and Columbia are so sweet. I love both with her book and her passion for it.
    Your tower is gorgeous and the theme in all, books, faces and your story is a very fine work.

  8. Not many of us could meet the A.P.R. challenge with artwork from a book they are illustrating! The children are so real, and I love their pose. As for the tower picture, what a marvellous angle to is, looking down from above. Loved everything here.
