Inspired by Picture Book Idea Month (PiBoIdMo), I'm posting a classic work of art as a picture book writing prompt every day in November. Focus on the picture as a whole or just one aspect of the work. Free write. Ask questions. Think about character, setting and plot: Who, Where, When, What, Why. Think about tone, mood and emotional impact. How would you have titled this painting? Have fun!
"Hunting on the Lagoon," Vittore Carpaccio, ca. 1490-95
