|My Birthday gift.|
I had a lovely book bought for my birthday recently, by my equally lovely friend 'D'.
So I wanted to post some photos of it, as it is quite delightful.
The tale is based on Red Riding hood, and I can remember looking at the blog of Jackie Morris ages ago, when this book was still in progress. I love the work of Catherine Hyde, and she has made such a wonderful job of creating the magic of this tale, which is always a popular subject with illustrators, even though the subject is quite dark and sinister, or probably because it is just that.
I will let you browse some of the pages, the use of the light and dark is brilliant.
|What an image, quite scary?|
|My favourite pages, oh how delightful!!|
I also managed to get back to York and armed with the camera, got round to taking those close up shots of around the doorway of York Minster, after a quick walk on the wall again :)
|Such a magnificent doorway.|
|just a tiny snippet of detail|
|This one made me smile.|
|More of the detail.|
I am sure there is some dark story behind all these carvings, I shall have to investigate?
|A lovely book in the centre there, it reminds me of Sandra Van Doorne?|
|Those cheeky little rascals in Bettys window, I could have bought the lot!!|
|This one made it home, and went down, down the little red lane, you won't see that fat rascal again!|
Hope you enjoyed my update. I've been busy working, but not much artworking, I may get some time soon to do much more. Bye for now folks.
