Honeymoon Cottage by nami64 Honeymoon Cottage by nami64
so, as I promised, the colored version... TADA! :) and the little story behind the drawing:

Thomas and Martha Jefferson were married on New Year’s Day, 1772, at the bride’s plantation home before setting out in a two-horse carriage for Monticello. They made the 100-mile trip in one of the worst snowstorms to hit Virginia. Eight miles from their destination, their carriage bogged down in 2–3 feet of snow; they had to proceed on horseback and rode the remaining distance over a rough mountian track. Arriving at Monticello late at night after the servants had banked the fires and retired, the couple settled in the freezing one-room, twenty-foot-square brick building, the “Honeymoon Cottage”. Thomas lit a fire in the fireplace to get some warmth and they toasted their new home with a leftover half-bottle of french wine hidden behind a shelf of books, and “song and merriment and laughter”.



-

well i'm sure they found other "ideas" to get warmer

my previous work with these two: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 |



note: i just LOVE this couple sfm. their whole love story could come from a tragic fictional romantic novel... i drew something happy but i still have depressive ideas for them

This is beautiful, even their story is lovely. :clap:

What made you want to start to draw the Jeffersons? That's such a rare but cool subject matter.

Just an FYI, it has become a 'fictional romantic novel', as tragic as only the truth of their marriage can be, I guess. It's called, 'My Thomas: A Novel of Martha Jefferson's Life'. Enjoy! (thank me ).

nami64 Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2012
internet. i can't find any good book about Thomas Jefferson there (France) so i read a lot via articles or free-books on the internet. it's pretty difficult to find informations about this love-story but... well, when you are obsessed about these two like me, you don't give up LOL :D

Namie this is gorgeous!! I love how snuggly and warm and even comfortable the setting is. I often feel this time period we only get to see the stiff daytime look. Seeing people from this time period, relaxed and is refreshing, I didn’t know they even knew how to unwind and be comfortable =P.

MERCI :) it's just, in my opinion people from this period were just... people lol so yes, the context was probably more stiff/formal and even tough but they feel in love and laughed and relaxed too =P
