Kimberley Bright from the Art Department spent time developing Brianna’s drawing style, wanting her artwork to subtly evoke seventies style but, at the same time, not seem too incongruous in the eighteenth century.
I started off making bright, colorful pastel drawings but, after much discussion, we ended up making them much darker and monochromatic to reflect her angst! The most anguished drawing features in Episode 411 in the dining room of River Run.
This drawing started out as a ‘self-portrait’ and progressed to the black and white drawing we see in the scene itself with multiple angst-ridden faces. This drawing represents Brianna, Lizzie, and Phaedre and the turmoil they all face as women—particularly Phaedre as a slave—living in the eighteenth century.
