I carried out the cartoons in pencil and charcoal. I gridded them and squared them up for transferring onto canvas. I loved the drawing and painting came next. When I think now I am amazed at my perseverance at hauling my work around the many houses I have lived in. 70 years! It is a miracle they have survived.
