Victorian Illustration



These are some experiments I've done as part of one of my third year projects.

I chose the theme 'riches' from a list and I've now gone all Victorian... The plan is at the moment to produce some work for a children's history book (like Dorling Kindersley but more pretty to look at).

I love drawing this kind of stuff because I loved history and I love the detail in some of the garments.

For all three paintings I used a mix of watercolour, ink and white acrylic for the details. I also tried to stay away from using too much black but I think I overdid it on the brooch.

Let me know what you all think! I'll probably end up putting some of these on Society 6 fairly soon. :)
