The creatures of Redwall sleep.

The creatures of Redwall sleep.
I created this original pastel painting for my work on the Redwall picture book series written by my late friend Brian Jacques. This is the original painting, not a print or a reproduction. I have included scans of the image as it appeared in A Redwall Winters Tale, published by Philomel Books in 2001.
The art features Bungo the mole babe curled up in his bed and several redwall dibbuns fast asleep.
While at the window the mighty Snow Badger finishes his work of frosting the panes of glass.
At the time I was really studying the work of Jean Francios Millet. I loved how he could capture that early morning light with his use of charcoal.
This painting was created with charcoal pencils and pastels on paper. The art area 17 3/4" long by 7 1/2" high. It is one of a kind.
