Painting, Sketching & Enjoying Arts

Hercules at the Royal Academy in London

The colossal statue  at the Royal Academy is truly remarkable and impossible to overlook. A closer look reveals that the man is depicted with a lion skin and head held beneath his arm. So it must be Hercules after he  completed one of his twelve legendary tasks. Interestingly, the statue is a specially crafted cast commissioned by the Royal Academy. For additional information, one can refer to their website, but I’ve also created a brief ink sketch a souvenir of my visit there.
