Thank a lot Martin , I have to thank my cousin for suggesting  the write ups ,   he told me" sometime a painting can be enhanced  by a bit of background  story  but other time they want to make their own story up" I chose to tell my version of things..

I 'd worry to much about how i write  to even think of approching someone about illustrated  books not that I'd  have the faintest idea where to go with one

I don't  suppose the cyanide,  warfin,  that they used to give themselves a buzz, the white lead that they on their faces  and in their wigs  also the many other strong drugs that were used  . Even the original group humble victory v lozenges  were laced with ether, chloroform  cannabis.

He was certainly  a strange old thing Lord bath i dont  suppose  he'd  have sold anything without his name

Many thanks. keeping up with me in full flow would be extreamly  difficult  as i got to 25 in one busy day. It  doesn't  matter how busy a day is there are alway lulls  where i can get a few scribbles in  and then I often batch  colour them so i might have 4 or 5 picture and using one colour at a time flick through  the pages using that colour until I've  used the colours I want , its an extreamly fast process  as i don't  have to keep cleaning my brush

Hello Martin,

Thank you so much for your kind comments on my artwork Al Pacino.

Thanks Martin  . To be truthful  looking at your art I always thought that You've  been classically  trained as they look like they're  in the style of some of the old masters  which make your work all the more amazing that you're  self taught.  Your practice sessions must have been long and hard won and you must have a great deal of Patience and dedication , 

for me I have very little  patience and very little dedications and if i'm  not happy with a painting in 3 to 4 hour I'd  probably  blank it out. It's why I do so many of my scribbles they're fast,  i  can record all the days events in an houror two  of scribbling

Talking to other people who do work like yours they always say that find it almost impossible to  paint in a looser  style and finding it frustrating  that every time it gets a Bit  Freer they have a fight with themselves  trying not to to correct  things. i do envy  your dedication  but I think I'm  happy with things how they are with what I do.

Best wishes paul

That's a lot Martin.  Apart from a bit of pottery at school I've  not had any art training so I try and make  the lack of it with enthusiasm and having as much fun as i can with painting.. I managed  another quick painting while waiting for the grandkids to come out of school  and as i caught a glimpse  of the river Thames in my travels today  i thought I'd  do one of the people fishing on the old sea wall
