The Wall

Today, I'm taking an offsite morning working on sketches for a Bharat Babies book at my dear friend Elizabeth's house with her dog, Dunk, by my side. Working on a spread of Seeta being held in a walled garden, I started looking for a few references for such a space. After not immediately finding something, I took a break to walk Dunk over to the side of this beautiful house in Marblehead, MA. BOOM! There is was! My reference for a walled garden...and a beautiful reference at that. It taught me that inspiration, more than likely, is NOT found in a Google search.
