I just finished this collage yesterday. I wanted to show Captain Wentworth in suspense as he waits for Anne to read his letter, if you look close you can see she is holding it in her hand. Working on the different layers of this project was really fun, I started with antique gold layer, then a layer of turquoise, crackle medium and white paint. The letter itself is done in black ink and swirls of gold ink added a pretty finishing touch. Captain Wentworth and Anne were painted on watercolor paper and then cut out and pasted on.

Just an interesting bit of information on my original inspiration for these pieces were Elinor from Emma Thompson 1995 version, if you watch the part of the movie when Elinor and Edward walk down a wooded path in Norland, you will see that the lady in blue is similar to Elinor. The inspiration for the bookmark was a scene from Miss Austen Regrets, where she stands on the little boat dock looking at the pond. She looked so lovely and melancholy too, I just had to paint it.

I have decided to start series of Regency fashion drawings, so far I have 1812 and 1807 fashions, and I plan to eventually cover all the years of the Regency period, from 1800-1825.
Right now I am working on a painting of Fanny Price and it should be coming out soon.
