    Proof positive you were a visual artist all along.

    I watched the Robin Hood w/ Russell Crowe & Cate Blanchett the other nite and was all excited that they show this horse: I know that horse from Dr H!

    Thanks Francesca! This was preparation work for some of my GCSE coursework. It actually turned out much better than the finished artwork, which was overworked and cluttered.
    I haven’t seen that Robin Hood (is it any good?). There was a children’s TV show from the 1970s (The Moon Stallion) that centred on the Uffington Horse. I was really obsessed by it! Perhaps I’ll blog about it soon.

    This new Robin Hood was OK–maybe a bit dull? (needed more Sheriff of Nottingham!)? But lots of realistically dirty people, and I did like Cate Blanchett’s sturdy, *competent* Marian—what women left alone to run households and farms might really have been like, rather than wilting lilies.

    Fabulous picture. I found my school project on chariot racing the other day; what we did before computers!
