Thanks to those of you who indulged me and had a go at guessing ....... yes, I attempted to draw Botticelli's Venus.
(Click for better view)
Such a gorgeous painting - one of my favourites.
As I try to improve my drawing skills there may be more guessing games!
No groaning, please..........

Did you not paint the original then.......? Maybe you were an artist in a former life ! Linda, you did a great job. Your sketching is going to be as good as your other art work, wonderful as always. More please, Jaqi x

B-hell! If this is an 'attempt' then don't know what you'll produce when you've perfected your arty skills!

I'm gobsmacked.

I am so pleased you are drawing and sketching... we are all enjoying seeing all of your wonderful art skills.

I recognised the face Linda but couldn't for the life of me remember who it was... must've been having another blond
I think you did an amazing job though, your sketching is fab!!
