Got me some new promo cards

I got some new cards printed, the illustration will soon be available to see via a new website currently being built.

That lovely painting is by William Dring 76’. Dring (1904-90) was a prolific portrait painter known for his boardroom and official portraits, and he depicted a number of royal occasions. One of his drawings is in the National Portrait Gallery, (Sir (William) Lawrence Bragg), and much of his war work is in the Imperial War Museum. He was also a regular exhibitor at the Royal Academy from 1928-70.

I picked it up from a charity shop for £40.

Oh, and that other lovely landscape A6 on top is from Adrian Taylor (from 2003).
