Love your Persuasion illustrations! That's always been one my favorite Austen books, and I've always felt it's severely underrated! Your illustrations are gorgeous!

These are amazing!! I love how you've captured these parts of the novel so beautifully! This part was so rediculous, and yet so serious at the same time. Anne shows what she's made of, while Louisa does quite the silly thing... Excellent.

Sorry, I'm from Germany and not sure about the movies title. But I remember a Jane Austen movie with a scene like this^^
Looks really nice. Like the lightening and the clouds as much as trhe wardrobe^^

It would be the same title as the book: Persuasion (as in my note about the piece). :)

Thank you!

Thanks, but I meant the German title for it - it changed. It's not just the translated word. But it's not that important since I never remember those titles^^

As soon as I read the title and saw the image, I knew immediately that this was a scene from Persuasion. Thank you for illustrating it exactly as I had imagined it.

Truly? :D

I suppose one can allow the misspelling of even one's own great great aunt's name occasionally. :p

Sorry, being cheeky! :blush: Thank you for your very kind comments though!
