◤ With the stars on show.. it is finally showtime !!◢
With all my free time I was finally able to to complete a drawing which I am very proud of !! I regretted it afterwards that I didn’t record it as I thought it would’ve made a good speedpaint, but otherwise it was nice to draw two of my favourite villains
This fawn-coloured coat and matching waistcoat (c.
1765-1775) are made of broad cloth, a woollen fabric woven on a wide
loom. Broad cloth was not always of exactly the same width. The
Universal Magazine recorded in 1764: ‘Burstall is a little town, noted
for the manufacture of a Broad-cloth, so called to distinguish it from
kerseys, druggets, & though the cloths of this country are all
called narrow at London, when compared with the broad-cloths made in the
West of England’.
