Wonderful Research

by Chantal

Postman just delivered my Invisible Cities book – yeah! A book I think will be very relevant to The Majestic Elk project, looks like it will be a exquisite read.

I’m loving the research for this project – wonderful books, films and images to work through. I just finished reading The Lost World for the first time and last week I was watching a modern version of Phantom Of the Opera, snapping screen shots on my phone that I thought would be relevant for our work.

Dean is already in the process of incorporating this gargoyle image I snapped from Phantom into the latest painting in which our adventuring couple meet the foreboding Shaman like character.
