The Shipping News (continued)

I've recently complete a short project based on the novel 'The Shipping News'. You can see the full set of illustrations on my website. Below are some progress images of the set's most bleakly epic image! 

You can also read a post about my current inspiration on the new Easting Blog.

These are beautiful, Lizzy! I read Norwegian Wood after I saw your illustrations - now I shall root out a copy of The Shipping News from somewhere!

I also love the first drawing in landscapes with the ship.
