a 18th century couple - Thomas and Martha Jefferson my previous work with these two: 1 | 2
because they both knew what ‘Death’ means: Martha lost her mother when she was just 6 days old -probably because of her birth- and 4 children during her lifetime (one from a previous marriage ; three with Thomas). Later, Thomas buried her and two of their daughters. Only one of their 6 children past the age of 25.
ugh… poor babies :’(

If only I saw your artworks before going through two years of US history, I would have had references and make little AUs in my head all the time and I would have kept everything in my head and... aaaaand *cries*
I love your interpretation, their looks, the clothes. Everything.
Ah what a harsh, cruel fate to endure, watching all your children and now your adored wife died before you. That must have been horrendous! This is goreous, by the way-the ringlets of hair, the detail of their frocks and the interlocking of her delicate hand upon his neck...your art work astounds me more and more and I can only dream that one day I can draw my beloved historical figures in this manner too! You have no idea how much I enjoy and admire your work, a million times, thank you!
Rah là là ça me rappelle tellement mes deux persos (Melly et Gabriel) que ça me fait me dire que je devrais me mettre un bon coup de pied aux fesses pour avancer un peu sur mon histoire... Décidément les rouquines 18e ça inspire! C'est quoi leur histoire à ces deux là? Tu t'es inspirée du riding habit bleu au renard de The Duchess? Je suis entrain de reproduire ce costume pour Noel à Vaux le Vicomte [link]
LOL oui, je me suis inspirée de ce costume il est tellement beau! et leur histoire à ces deux là? rhalala... je pourrais en parler des heures (ils m'inspirent tellement! si on m'avait dit un jour que je dessinerais sur un des pères fondateurs et sa femme ...), tu peux lire sur eux sur mes précédent dessins -mais en anglais- : [link] ; [link] ; [link] . voilà
Réveillée surtout ! Ce qui n'est pas mon cas avec mes petites heures de sommeilXD Je reste au chaud chez moi j'étais malade toute la nuit >_< Mais ça a de bons côté, je fais des trucs pour moi pour une fois !
LOL i don't know well... i watched a mini serie about John Adams recently and it was just sooooo good, and Thomas Jefferson was in it. And as i don't know a lot about american history and revolution (we don't really study it there in France) i wanted to lear more. And Thomas Jefferson is a fascinating character... voilà 8)
Yes, I would know about the French program being French myself (you might wonder why, then, do I comment in English? probably because your description was ^^). Anyway, you triggered my curiosity and made me want to look a little more into Jefferson's life, thanks , I think it is one of the aim art should have (enhancing curiosity that is).
