Romeo and Juliet

After the success of the Romeo and Juliet plate for Compton and Woodhouse this was a follow up commissioned as an illustration for jigsaws. Two friends modelled as the star crossed lovers and the balcony though largely invented includes authentic moulding details from the Capulet balcony in Verona. I am a devotee of the great Maxfield Parrish and the moonlight gave me full opportunity to indulge in Parrish Blue.
