Women in the English Civil War Book Cover

Very happy with how my latest commission came out. It took a half day photo shoot of the author in four different guises and many different poses. The best one of each was then carefully cut out, exposures and white balance corrected, then highlights were painted on the two that were taken when the sun was behind the clouds. Can you tell which ones they were?
Then they were sized and arranged, the shadow created and then places on the background which is a photograph of a painting in the Museum of London that is actually of the Great Fire of London, but I think it suits the “world in flames” feel of the English Civil War.

The book is called “The Women of the English Civil War” it is by Margaret Cooper Evans, and will be on Amazon soon as both a Kindle e-book and a real life paperback .
