Found a bunch of pens and grey markers (in different shades) I had brought from China but had forgotten and never really used. So had to test them and drew another corner of our kitchen. (Markers are really difficult to use.)

Went back to Kensal Green cemetery to sketch today. I wanted to sketch one of the big old tombs or memorials there and was drawn to this one. It belongs to a military man from Bengal army, the weird stuff on top of the coffin seems to be a cloak, a helmet, and maybe a shield. I guess there must be a sword somewhere there too.

The dairy farmers claim that badgers spread bovine tuberculosis whereas the largest study of tuberculosis suggests that the industry's own practices are the real reason behind the crisis and killing badgers wouldn't help in any meaningful way.
