I took a liking to a sculpture of a nanny goat when I was at the Picasso Museum in Paris and decided to do a drawing based on it. I don’t know if Picasso would have approved, but I had great fun doing it. The original is called Nanny Goat (Chevre) and was sculpted in 1950, the year I was born.

I used A3 paper and coloured pencils.

I am a retired man who enjoys expressing himself in pencils and paints. I have had two solo exhibitions in my home town and I love Redbubble. I get as much pleasure from viewing the works of other artists as from creating my own.

    Dave he looks such a friendly fellow. We are having some rain here the grass is growing, no he might eat the gold fish in the small pond we have here now.

  • Forgive me for teasing you Gloria, but nanny goats are always female; billy goats are male :) Thanks for saying she looks friendly …
