Out flew the web and floated wide;
The mirror crack'd from side to side;
'The curse is come upon me,' cried
The Lady of Shalott. Thus wrote Alfred, Lord Tennyson in his poem 'The Lady of Shalott'.

I wanted to draw what it is about. This isn't quite how I intended it to be, but this is how it ended up so you and me will have to live with that. At first I wanted to colour it too, but I ended up shadowing rather heavily with my drawing pencil, and now I don't really dare to colour it anymore. I don't want to ruin it.
My way of 'shadowing' is to simply go over the dark pencil with colours and smudge a lot. But inhere... The result wouldn't be too good I'm afraid.
Oh, yeah, and the line in the middle of the drawing... I had to scan this in two times since it was too big. Can't fix it any better than this I'm afraid...
