What a morning of winter light.

This beautiful woman is a gargoyle on Gloucester Cathedral, the rain water comes off the roof out of the pot she is carrying.This is a wonderful piece of carving by the skilled stonemasons at the Cathedral and today was one of those days when the winter light is just right to photograph such things. This is high up on the Cathedral roof and it was only thanks to a telephoto lens that I was able to get this close, and thanks to one of those wonderful sunny winter’s days that the light was right.

I normally only feature cartoons on this site, after all this is what it’s all about for me, but an image like this deserves to be shared.

Back to the drawing board tomorrow.

Top of the jungle…

Go back a few posts to my jungle parrot and this is the top of the drawing from there for the poster with ‘Essence of Jungle’.
That’s me at the drawing board and is of course taken directly from life with no added embellishment.

Here’s a close up to help you, as you can see I am drawing a jungle scene, again!jungleprofile
