Illustration Friday - Homage

(click image to enlarge)
Hommage

This is my homage to William H. Brown (1808-1883) a renowned silhouette artist.
My piece is a digital rendition (CorelDraw) of his wonderful full body silhouettes. Some of his work can be seen at The Red House Collection.

Wow, Ursula, this is a beautiful illustration. I love the shading and all the wonderful details, the landscape through the window, and all those amazing patterns on the wallpaper, curtains, floor. This is a great homage!

Thank you for your homage to Brown. He was my great-grandfather. Last Thursday (May 22) was his 200th birthday! I can't think of a more fitting tribute than your illustration based on his silhouette.
