The Romantic


This is my rendition of Cyrano beneath Roxane's balcony.

Ah, if only poor Roxane knew what 'the nose' portended!



Even from here the leaves look ticklish. Ah. ACHOO!

Roxanne was my first exposure to Cyrano, so it's neat to see the parallels to the one you link, G.

Dr. Bob:

Ah, with a schnozz like that, you'd need a shovel to pick it.

And if I remember correctly, Cyr had a total disdain for Balzac.

Steve M:

Nice cinematic composition, subtle colors and textures.

John Cox:

Hey Steve

Thanks for the good word. Pastel on cold press illustration board is very forgiving. It's almost as if erasures and modifications thicken the piece.
