I haven't seen many of Millais' sketches but this is beautiful. It's so intimate. Thank you for sharing! The Pre-Raphaelites are my major inspiration for becoming an illustrator.

Thank you, this was just so intimate and considering what was happening at the time. I loved your own work by the way - you should be so proud.
