African Queen miniature - colour pencil
Whoa! That was a surprise! My first ever miniature of 'African Queen' has been accepted for this years Exhibition of the Royal Society of Miniature Painters and is on show at the Mall Galleries in Central London. Measuring a staggering one and a quarter inches by three and an eighth (or something very close), I was astonished to find it took me every bit as long to produce as it's rather larger sister piece.
