Caius’ Closet


This cupboard from The Merry Wife’s of Windsor play caught my eye at the Stratford Archives.

It was very dark inside the cupboard so I sat quite close and sketched a partial section of it. Again I added a spritz of water to my colour and watched it bleed. It’s exciting to watch this but also stressful as one doesn’t know how it will end up. What I may have to do is allow the brown ink to dry longer to control the bleeding a bit more.

If you look closer you can see an owl in the cage.
