This is an expertly executed portrait of Mellisandre Maverick, posing clothed, sitting amidst a scene of raucous decadence, several bottles of scumble scattered around her. The scene outside the Mended Drum has been reproduced exquisitely by the artist, including blood spatters, shattered glass and puddles of vomit. In one corner of the painting, two seamstresses can be seen. One appears to be holding back the other's hair - doubtless to keep her spotless as she throws up into a barrel. Another image depicted in the painting is the art of dwarf-tossing, with some inebriated members of the Ankh-Morpork Palace Guard grabbing hapless members of the vertically-challenged community and hurling them through the door of the erstwhile public house. A baby can be seen falling cheerfully out of a window in the distance, whilst in another part of the picture, a wizard can be assumed to be doing something obscene with a staff with a knob on the end. Painted scruffily on one of the carts in bright white is the moniker 'SCUMBLE LANE' - the painting being an allegory for the perils and joys of this apple-based beverage.

This is a masterfully executed portrait of Elanor the Wise, posing clothed, Standing in the midst of a tumultuous storm, the raging winds whipping her robe and her cloak billowing behind her. In her right hand a staff with a knob on the end blazes with arcane power and her eyes glow with a vivid blue light. Lightning cascades from her wizard's pointy hat and crackles between her fingers as she defies the full fury of nature. Standing firm against the might of the storm.

This is a competently executed portrait of Fole von Bruxa, posing clothed, in her finest black cloak, holding her broom close to her busom but somehow in a semi-threatening angle whilst complaining but at the same time eyeing up an Ankh-Morpork Watchman about the state of the streets around The Illuminated Teapot.

+
This is an expertly executed portrait of Bonobo, posing naked, graciously giving an exquisite pearl necklace to what looks like a kneeling Genuan maid. What a generous person Bonobo must be!.
