Viking study for next print

This is a study to work out what I'm doing for the next print. I love the original photograph which shows all the different types who participate in the Jorvik Viking Festival, and also how good their costumes are, most of which are made especially, no fancy dress shops here! Specialised leather workers and blacksmiths are involved as everyone takes great care to make their costumes as authentic as possible.

This drawing is made with watercolour and colour pencil and is 30x30cm.

Here's a link to a great set of viking festival images:
