The Bride of Lammermoor (if: Shadows)

June 05, 2011

Whenever I read Sir Walter Scott I want to draw scenes from his books. Lately I've been reading The Bride of Lammermoor (a vintage thrift-store find!) and wishing to do some Art Nouveau-style lettering . . . put them together, and there you are!

It's been too long since I've posted--I've been designing and sewing a wedding dress for my sister-in-law, which kind of squeezed out my sketching time. The dress is now finished, ironed, and ready for the wedding--which will, I am quite sure, end much more happily than the Bride of Lammermoor's. :D

  1. Fabulous! That's really great to visualize scenes from these old books. Do you make them all up (costumes and all) in your head, or do you have some reference material? I really really like this!

  2. Thank you! For clothing inspiration I sometimes do a google search or flip through "Costume Through the Ages" by Erhard Klepper for basic ideas. Fashion-wise this turned out looking a little more King Charles than Queen Anne, but I decided that a little artistic license was ok. :D
