Here’s some design in progress for my next piece; The Lady of Shalott.
The Victorian-Arthurian poem as penned by Tennyson, and as imagined by Waterhouse.
I’m taking my colour palette from the famous boat painting and really happy with these treasures I’ve found thus far;
A hand painted Victorian boat shaped tea-tray, silk cushion panel, miniature cane peacock chair, wool embroidery on linen, a round Victorian cushion pad in green velvet and gold trim, black enamel jug, black and floral painted pot.
The cream silk handkerchief will form part of her costume (more on that later!)
