Illustration for The Master Thief
, from Andrew Lang's The Red Fairy Book
, published by The Folio Society, 2008.
Pen and ink and watercolour on 140lb/300gsm Arches cold pressed, 245 x 185mm.
The illustration is of the moment when the Governor rallies his friends to try and catch a hare which the 'Master thief' of the title has let loose in his household.
For some reason, I decided that the lady in black just behind him is his daughter.
