Lost In the Woods

For "Illustration Friday" word of the week "lost", another in my series of illustrations for the Brothers Grimm story of "Rapunzel". The text on this page reads
The Prince was beside himself with grief, and in his despair he jumped right down from the tower, and though he escaped with his life, the thorns among which he fell pierced his eyes out.

Then he wandered, blind and miserable, through the wood, eating nothing but roots and berries, and weeping and lamenting the loss of his lovely bride.

So he wandered about for some years, as wretched and unhappy as he could well be, and at last he came to the desert place where Rapunzel was living.
