Bleak House

The third episode of Charles Dickens's "Bleak House" aired tonight on PBS and as I watched the program I tried to sketch the characters faces. Pictured are Mr. Tulkinghorn, Lady Dedlock, Guppy, Esther Summerson, Richard Carstone, Krook and Smallweed (Dickens created such wonderful characters and gave them such marvelous names!) This has been a fun drawing exercise and in addition to getting me to look more closely at faces, it's also been helpful to remember who's who as there is a total of 41 characters in the story!
