And now for something different …still at the Georgian festival.
After a couple of months of doing very little in the drawing line, I went to a sketching day in Leicester Museum and Art Gallery, and did seven sketches.
Here’s one of the drawings, with a photo and a poem!
Now, fox – when did you die?
Hands removed your skin
and treated it
constructed a skeleton frame
inserted glass eyes
arranged your expression
almost curious and cunning
fitted your legs like socks
on artificial limbs
and posed you on a plinth.
Today we’ve drawn you,
lots of us
attracted to the idea of fox
and dead animals don’t move
but do have three dimensions
We give you some new life
you look cute
Are you plotting some mischief
on chicken coop or rabbit hutch?
With our looking,
each of us made
some kind of memorial
of a fox.
Miejsce urodzenia Fryderyka Chopina.
Chopin was born here in early 1810, but his family moved to Warsaw a few months later. However they visited from time to time.
Now it is a museum in beautiful parkland. You’ll have to wait for a moment for the link to load after the photo of Warsaw with its stadium!!
This drawing was done from a photo. I sketched the scene when we were there last month, on a magical day with perfect weather, but I did this drawing at home yesterday.

Marta and I gave up on the weather, and had a coffee in Uppingham instead of a walk!
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
