This life-size cartoon, which indicates the scale on which the Hyde Park mural was originally envisaged,  conveys a monumentality which is, arguably, lacking in the finished oil painting.

John Midgley, Principal of Carmarthen, commented on Stanley's skill as a draftsman as follows:
His work was always marked by thoroughness and strong individuality, and in his drawing he showed himself to be the possessor of a rare skill in the characterization of his subject.  In figure work in particular his studies evinced his ability to appreciate and render form. (January 1926)
