A snail who had a way, it seems,
Of dreaming very curious dreams,
Once dreamed he was - you'll never guess!
The Lighting Limited Express!
And I thought, ah ha, never painted a snail before, so here he is. I won't paint one again, actually I can't stand them, but actually their shell is quite interesting. I used wax to try and get the sense of texture and a shiney, slimey body.
And today I am off, with a good friend of mine. to learn to paint like Turner, at the Lady Lever Gallery in Port Sunlight. Now there's a lovely village.
