From Alice in Wonderland, Chapter 12, Alice's Evidence :
" ...and found herself lying on the bank, with her head in the lap of her sister, who was gently brushing away some dead leaves that had fluttered down from the trees upon her face.
'Wake up, Alice dear!' said her sister; 'Why, what a long sleep you've had!'
'Oh, I've had such a curious dream!' said Alice, and she told her sister, as well as she could remember them, all these strange Adventures of hers that you have just been reading about; and when she had finished, her sister kissed her, and said, 'It was a curious dream, dear, certainly: but now run in to your tea; it's getting late.' So Alice got up and ran off, thinking while she ran, as well she might, what a wonderful dream it had been."
And so we're nearly at the end of this first stage of posts. Thanks for sticking with me through it!
Tomorrow I'm going to recap, all of the color studies together and see how they all look next to each other. From there, next Monday (5/6/10) begins the real posts -- the final drawings.
