I'll come to thee by moonlight, though hell should bar the way

Lately, I'm in the mood for The Highwayman. It makes me think back to high school, back to the time when I was sitting in class, learning about this poem. We were lucky to have a good English teacher. I must have like this poem since then. I love it even more as a song (even though it didn't cover the complete version of the poem).

I was listening to this song early this morning, and I did a rough sketch for The Highwayman. For some reason I just love the part where she let her hair down for her lover to kiss it.

And here's the finished drawing of the highwayman kissing the sweet black waves (I know, she is supposed to be at her window, not right next to him).

I guess deep down, I really am a romantic person.

  1. I love Loreena McKennitt. Your sketches are really beautiful! The faces are beautiful. I'm a total romantic, myself. Anyway, I wanted to come by and wish you a happy holiday and lovely new year. xoxo
