A Series of Unfortunate Events; Two in Bagelboy's

Unfortunately, the first of these suffered a series of unfortunate events including a wetting that was unplanned. These are: 1) The Temptation of Eve, or Original Sin, or The Fall of Man, by Hugo van der Goes, 1467-8, or Titian, 1570 and 2)The Coronation of the Virgin, Raphael, c. 1503. The first is on Gesso, water color pencil, colored pencil, ink, and gouache and the second in water color pencil, colored pencil, ink. I viewed the pix and then a week and a half later, I did the sketches in the car without referring to the original pix. Mary Taitt.

If you click on these, you can view them much larger, and, unfortunately, see the "staining" where the water-color pencil ran when it got wet. I tried to clean it up. So sorry, Alan!! :-(

I tripped--klutz-like--with my little container for "painting" over the water color pencils. Aiee!

I've been on the road traveling almost the entire month and have been having trouble finding time to sketch.

I like things that run ecspecialy paint.
I also like heavenly beings in clouds.
Original sin, the devil and guilt.
Thank you for making my book ecspecialy nice.

I'm so glad you aren't angry. (Falling down the stairs with the mole and the water container were bad enough, but then causing a problem in someone else's book was really upsetting!)(good thing no one had a video camera trained on me, I might have made Funniest Home Videos!)(Only it wasn't funny at the time!)

When you did find time to sketch you did a lovely job! So much to look at here.
