Was experimenting recently with defining panel borders (including dream sequences and flashbacks) solely using watercolors, for the current revision of Spirits & Seekers: Cagliostro in Courland. My test images (3 of the 6 are shown here) are all based on the 1784 portrait of Elisa von der Recke by Joseph Friedrich August Darbes (bottom). Elisa was the author of Account of the notorious Cagliostro’s sojourn in Mitau in 1779, and his magical operations there (1787), and is a major character in my graphic novel Spirits & Seekers.
