Collage 629

At some point along the way, in the course of the 2 years that I've been working on this project, I got interested in working more closely with the text, in a more illustrative way. In this scene, Pierre and Natasha have fallen in love and are considering marriage. Princess Marya is their go-between. They are both very happy. So I used some images of 19th century houses to represent the return to domesticity after all the war traumas and upheavals. -- Lola
