12.10.17 knight

A quick knight drawing today as time is tight. He relates to a proposal I am working on about the painting of ‘Una and the Lion’ by William Bell Scott. Una and the lion are characters in the epic poem ‘The Faerie Queene’, written by Edmund Spenser in 1590. It is a tale of adventure, bravery, dragons, princesses and knights and it inspired Scott’s beautiful painting. I have been reading around the subject this morning and when I sat down to draw, out came a knight.

Drawn in waterproof black drawing pen.
