Rescued

"Thanks Dorothy. My throry is that I think it must have been the fashion to paint people in the same style at that time.  If you go back a bit further to Carravaggios time the people looked relatively normal. Only a theory though."

It's always worth a try especially with you husband being invalided  out because a night jump ,  that would be right up the top of my  request  page about the night jump. injuries.

My nephew  did your of Afghanistan  his injuries are ptsd and  theres hardly a month were  he isnt being  flown on some trip  by either by the legion or help for heros

Most bigger scooters go 8mph and 4 mph and you can only go 4 mph on a footpath. The is a man who has a. Illegal  16mph scooter in town and he goes flat out on the pavement

Hello Dorothy,

Thank you for your comments on Christ on the Cross, we will learn from each other. Once stop learning we stop creating and that is the heartbeat of art, I am willing to try anything new to achieve my goals.

Hello Dorothy once again, glad that you like it. It was hard work trying to create that leather jacket look, it  took time but in end if it achieves the end result you know you have got there. Thank you for your kind comments.

Hello Dorothy,

So pleased that you like “ Man without a gun “ Clint Eastwood.  My understanding is it affects men more than women my spectrum falls under the reddish grey colours,  I have learnt to live with it and as far as painting goes I read a lot and look at videos  for colour tones and skintones and just add the colours what is required and if it looks good to me then I carry on and hope it works. I Went through a period where I was fascinated by detail and using the routine pen gave me that ability. If you have time please have a look at Christ on the Cross which took quite awhile to create.

Adam
