that dulcimer again


The hammered dulcimer: not interesting but very difficult to draw.

This illustration has been frustrating me for weeks - conflicting descriptions in the source text, my own refusal to commit to a particular style for the project, accidentally locking myself in to the dull colours I sketched it in etc etc. I declare the frustration over! It's fine as it is.

It's so beautiful! And I at least like the muted colours. :)

Wow! Just found your blog! You have such a beautiful style. And with a name like Alice Duke you had to be either an illustrator or a rock star!
