Another full page colour illustration from 'Annabella'.
Rachel has employed a major change in tactic in this night-time illustration. The darkness is emphasised by using black Indian ink for the drawing and a blue background wash over the whole picture. This shows the speeding night express to Aberdeen in a scene that encompasses everything stereotypical of Scottish landscape imagery – the rail viaduct over the river valley with the mountains behind – and of course Rachel's inevitable 'signature' rabbit. Interestingly, the heavily emphasised foreground tree is closely reminiscent of Rachel's uncle George Wilson's often ethereal treatment of windswept trees.
