I have just got back from a little trip to London. Whilst I was there I did some sight seeing and went to a show or two, but I was most looking forward to a couple of hours in the National Gallery.
This means a visit to The Leonardo Cartoon, also known as The Burlington House Cartoon, which always make me shed a tear. I was lucky enough this time to have a bit of spare time so I tried to sketch a representation of this great work by Leonardo da Vinci.
As you can see, I didn’t get it right the first time. The two faces at the top of the page were the first try and I missed the mark slightly on them.
I decided to concentrate solely on Mary. Better then my previous two attempts I thought but I still feel that I missed the mark a bit. However you have to remember this was done on location in the gallery itself! Not the most peaceful atmosphere.
Until next time
