The Netherfield Ball
This was an attempt at impressionism using a scene from Pride and Prejudice. I wanted to capture an air of noise, light from a multitude of lamps, bustle, anticipation, excitement even, people/coaches arriving for a Regency ball in the evening. I tried to do it by suggestion of it all rather than any real detail of anything.
Indeed, indeed, Repentance oft before, I swore---but was I sober when I swore?
And then and then came Spring, and Rose-in-hand, My thread-bare Penitence apieces tore.
