Red deer stag (Cervus elaphus
). Pencil, sepia powder and tinted charcoal on train ticket prepared with gesso, approximately 85 x 54mm. The full view is much larger than the original.
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.
