A First Try-Out for Melisande
I've had cause recently to go through my archive of original illustrations.
That word "archive" makes it sound a lot more neatly organized than it actually is I'm afraid.
I came across this painting which was my first effort at illustrating Melisande.
It appears that I was setting the book back in medieval times, but I am glad that when I really got into the process I updated the costumes a bit.
I still like this one though, and I am surprised that the composition didn't get used in the book somewhere.
