"Once upon a time, a young prince went riding out in the moonlight."
Sometime in the 80's I saw a beautiful illustration by John Bauer, dated circa 1914 in a book at a library. I made a sketch of the drawing and, once at home, coloured it with colour pencils and Stabilo brush pens. Maybe something else that I cannot any longer remember. Mixed media it was for sure. I have retouched it using Photoshop and added a frame and a dark Moon. I also tried to get rid of some yellow spots due to the age. Paper used was Fabriano, as usual.
Based on John Bauer's illustration to the "Tale of the The Ring, Bland Tomtar Och Troll".
