ImageRed deer stag. Pencil, sepia powder and tinted charcoal on train ticket prepared with gesso, approximately 85 x 54mm.

The ticket is from when I was staying with my friend, palaeontologist and marine reptile expert, Dr Adam Stuart Smith. Adam showed me around Wollaton Hall and Deer Park,  presently rather famous for having served as Wayne Manor in the latest Batman film. Though I must say I’m much keener on the deer and the natural history collection myself.
