Special Request Shakespeare Art: Sonnet 18 Illustration

By special request, I created this artwork for Sonnet 18.  Playing with Elizabethan lace as the graphic inspiration, I tried to weave elements from the visuals of the poem: flowers, wind, and the warmth of the summer sun.

The original sketch is worked with fine pencil, then overlaid in black ink.  I then work watercolour and Sennelier inks over the lacey  lines for the full colour finish.
