Leonardo da Vinci’s ‘Virgin and Child with St Anne and John the Baptist’ is hanging at the National Gallery in London. When I saw it I was astounded by it’s magical composition and expressive detail. I sat with my daughter and ‘watched it’ for ages. I had to ‘ have a go’ and the more time I spent at it, the more I marveled at
Da Vinci’s genius and it was almost like stepping back in time
and being there with him.

There was so much I would have liked to ask him.

Leonardo used chalks for his great work.
I used acrylic paint for my copy. Go and see the Original. It is amazing.
