A fine pair of portrait busts from the upper floor of Bath’s Victoria Gallery (you can see both of them in the linked photo). First there’s Sir Cloudesley Shovell (honestly), a famous C17th admiral and guitarist. Then George 3rd, king of Britain for 59 years, sculpted by Turnerelli. Both were drawn in situ, with fountain pen for the lines, and dilute ink in water-brush for the shading; I added the blue water-colour to George to help the white marble stand out.
