"Yes Paul.   I used to say that I would have loved to have lived in that era until my Mum said it would be OK if you were rich but if you were at the bottom on the heap you would feel differently"

"Wonderful work.  I like his gaze - it is looking right at me as he studies me.   His lace cravat is just so well painted"

If you ever find yourself in Edinburgh take a wander into the Nation Gallery of Scotland where you will see (up close and personal) a painting by Constable.  You can see the brushstrokes.  I stood there peering it at and hoping to learn from it.  Again I do not have the talent.   There were no barriers around this painting but I expect that if you tried to take it from the wall all hell would break loose.  Enjoy your day.

Hi martin.   I google Alexander and his work is amazing.  Like you I had never heard of him.  The way he handles satin and velvet like fabrics is to die for.  I once spent an afternoon in the portrait gallery of Scotland and one picture was of Madam Pompadour and you would have thought if you touched the silk of her dress it would be just like the real thing.

I do agree Martin.   I don't know whether it was a sultry look or one where a laugh or smile was not far away.

Many thanks for your comments on Rutger Hauer, who sadly passed away.

I was watching Blade Runner, just before I did this artwork when found out he had passed away, gone but not forgotten.

Many thanks for your comments Martin. I though it was time to get back onto my easel in my playroom.

I've been doing lot of my scribbles, I've done a number of watercolours and as I counted 25  blank canvases in my room  I though its time to use some, this one of the smaller ones

I was surprised that you are that quick, I've see others that can take months over a similar. Piece

Thanks Martin, been a while since I posted anything on the site. When the weather is nice I would rather be out there pottering around. I think this must be my third version of this image. I did this few nights ago, so pleased that you like it.
