This is so great! It belongs in a book or a magazine....the high society sort.

Hi Lisa.
It is a wonderful pen and wash painting. So clean. wonderful drawing as well Lisa. Thanks for letting me know that one isn`t allowed to paint with any medium other than watercolour at the National Gallery. all the best Lisa.

Hi Barbara, thank you, too! The original painting is lovely. I didn't know it before and it caught my eye immediately when I passed it. It's quite big, too, which makes it even better.
