Thus is drawn from the same source as yesterday’s but I tried to free up a little. The paints are not my new ones but the cheap set I keep in the office. I still need to free up my painting. I had two atteat it, I think I prefer the first one. I can see the proportions are a bit out too!

First attempt at using the new watercolours Ginny bought me for my birthday.They are Windsor & Newton artists colours with much more pigment than the student colours I have been using. As usual I need to loosen up so I am not overjoyed with tonight’s effort.

Something a bit different today. When grandson Emmet comes over he likes me to draw his favourite characters on his blackboard. This week he asked for Paw Patrol Mayor Goodway, of course I couldn’t refuse.

I visited the Southampton Art Gallery today with Gill to see the Leonardo drawings. They are superb but much smaller than I imagined. Apparently paper was very expensive 500 years ago so they had to make the most of every piece, they should have bought it on line where it’s cheaper.

I didn’t attempt to copy any Da Vinci drawings because the gallery was dark and quite busy but there was plenty to draw in the rest of the galleries including one devoted to Sir Edward Burne-Jones and his Perseus series. This is my attempt at Perseus rescuing Andromeda from a giant eel. I don’t know why she is naked and seems unconcerned about the whole thing, I just like drawing nudes.
