Illustrations for 'Złota Kaczka' (Golden Duck), one of Warsaw's legends, according to Artur Oppman's version. Painted with a tablet in Black & White.

The illustrations were prepared for classes for children, who are supposed to arrange them in a chronological order after listening to the legend. But don't worry, I published them in a correct order already ;)
