“There’s a summer palace in Ios outside the capital. My mother designed the gardens there. They say it’s built on Artesian foundations.” He thought of the meandering walks, the delicate, flowering southern orchids, the sprays of orange blossom. “It’s cool in summer, and there are fountains, and tracks for riding.”
“When all this is over… we could take horses and stay a week in the palace.” After a moment, Laurent said, softly,
“I’d like that” (Pacat, Kings Rising, pg. 243-244).
This sketch/painting was based on the imagery from the end of chapter 14. The background nearly killed me, but overall, I really enjoyed doing this.
