Islamic Ceramic

We had a drawing class with the marvellous Maryclare in the British Museum. I spent time in the Islamic Art section and the Japan section. The drawing below is copied from a 15th Century dish. It was painted in a deep blue onto a white glaze. Some Islamic painting was really influential in the early stages of the development of my creature, so it was nice to learn more about it and see another graceful bearded animal.
