Here Captain Jasper is enjoying the quiet of the early morning I wonder what hes thinking? There is a portrait of his horse Coco on the chair and a length of fabric printed locally.
I’ve used watercolours and pencil on stretched heavyweight cartridge paper deciding not to ink in lines because I like the softness overall of the line and the colours.
An additional pencil and watercolour drawing illustrating Captain Jasper (on the right) on deployment with the 2nd Dragoon Guards in India 1857.
He has been recreated as a lead soldier with his horse on task collecting Turkish delight across the tablecloth in England 2020 . The image below has been posted previously!
