Following the chart to 52 drawings this year. The profile of Mata Hari (Margaretha Geertruida MacLeod nee Zelle)
As most of you know, I’m in the process of writing a historical novel set partly during World War One. In the course of my research of The Great War, I read all sorts of fascinating stories –some of which will help me write the time period accurately. Other bits of information won’t really help with the writing but they’re just too interesting not to keep reading. You see why this book is taking so long? I keep wandering off the main path onto the side roads and getting lost! The story of Mata Hari is one such detour. However, not only is her story interesting (coming later this week) but her profile was a real challenge to sketch.
