Yesterday and today I’ve spent most of the time drawing sketches based on paintings and photographs, to improve my drawing skills. One of the paintings in the queue was the painting ‘The Flight of Charles the Bold’ by Eugene Burnand, dated around 1895, because horses and suits of armour are a struggle:

The painting depicts the flight of the Burgundians after losing the battle of Morat against the Swiss army in 1476.

Apart from the fact that Charles the Bold in the painting doesn’t quite look like the real Charles the Bold, I get the impression that his face was reycled in the back of the train:

Maybe it’s the doppler effect.

Yeah, it’s a slow day.
