Leitch taught Charlotte Canning, one of Victoria’s ladies-in-waiting, who was a talented amateur watercolourist. Lady Canning recommended the artist to the queen as a tutor. This watercolour was attributed to Canning and Leitch in Victoria and Albert’s album, suggesting it was made during a lesson at Osborne.
