On My Drawing Table: Author Portraits, Washington Irving

The third in my (very slow to put together) series of author portraits.
I completed the pencil sketch last year,

After researching images of Washington Irving ...
I also wanted to combine an image of one of his most popular stories, like I have done with Poe.

 I think that my image has shaved about 20 years off of the one I used for
research. But that is not necessarily a bad thing :)

Prints of him will appear on my etsy site tomorrow. And I will be bringing
them along to the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery Craft Fair,
October 26th.
