This is a sketch I did in Goa, then ruined, then reconstructed.
There was this temple somewhere in Goa with a crude leopard and lion statue guarding its entrance. So when we got back to our huts I tried sketching it.
I botched my first attempt drawing it.
So I drew another version above the first.
But I dislike ruined pages in my sketchbook so I decided to paint over the botched drawing in an attempt to rescue it somewhat.
Someone said they prefered the botched page now because it looked very childish.
I rather like them both next to each other, in tandem as a contrast.
I have since found out from a Goa resident that this temple Leopard is called ‘Spotty’.
