PLEASE VIEW LARGE

I have recently been studying some of my old drawings and paintings and incorporating some of the techniques I have tried out over the past few decades.

The herring-bone pattern in the background of this picture is taken from the portrait of Gustave Dore I have in my portraits collection.

When I saw an old photo belonging to Barbara Callahan of Redbubble I asked her permission to base a drawing on it and she didn’t hesitate to say yes I could, so thanks Barb.

I used a 0.35mm Rotring Isograph pen and some coloured pencils to create this fantasy picture. The original photo of a lady on an ostrich is real, but Barb isn’t sure who the subject is, so calls her Lucille.

Here is Barbara’s original photograph.
