I jumped on a lovely new Routemaster at Westminster, heading for Charing Cross (Thomas Heatherwick came in for some stick over the new bus, I don't know why. People are so fussy, I think they're great.) Across the aisle was this magnificent woman.
I took a stealthy photo of her in the few minutes before I jumped off at the Strand.
First she was a sketch
And next she became a watercolour.
Also somewhere in the back of my mind I think was this Hockney portrait of Divine ,
though his is so colourful and beautiful, Matisse-like, I may go back and rework it.
