Thanks Martin for the info.    I must admit I have never heard of Blue Earth but will have a look at them.

I do like I wide range of music including motown, folk rock and roll  and pop. You needed  to the meet the ladies as metal  tended to be a boys only club,  I did have to be able hear and understand the words and they needed a story. I  didn't go in for groups that were purely about volume with a few meaningless words throw in from time time

I had the misfortune to see  motor head once  in a festival I wanted to see slade and the blue oyster cult who were on the same line up

Hi Martin,

Ok, I am a bit coloured blind so it is always interesting to understand what colours what others artists use.

 If you were as prolific as I am you wouldn't have time for so much wonderful detail and I'm sure you'd be unhappy with the less detailed  work.  I'm  retire so there's no calls on my time

I've slowed down a lot   although I did do three sketches in a cafe that I haven't posted yet. I can also flit between my scribbles,  watercolour and acrylic paintings all in the same day

It is getting very disappointing Hov few people post  now and some of those that post never reply to comments  or comment on others work which is a big shame because when I joined there could be 3 or 4 pages of comment.

 I'm please that the community art gallery that I'm a member of has just reopened  at least I can show three pieces on a gallery wall now.

Do you post elsewhere

Thanks Martin.   It is a good feeling when a client is happy.  I recall one lady in tears and talking to my portrait of her departed dog.  She gave me more money than I had asked for.  I was just so pleased that she liked it.

I'm sure your clients will love Sofie's portrait.   When I do a commission of an animal I always look at their faces when I show them my work.  I can usually tell if they really like it or if they are doubtful.  Let us know if they like it please.

Thanks Martin I was pleased how the perspective worked out on this. I  much prefer working on canvas than paper and as you can imagine they take up lots of rooms. I must have at least 300 canvases  then I have over a 1000 on A3 paper plus a big box full of pads from my scribbles so the occasional culling is needed

That you Martin  for your kind comment.  I've had a long break from acrylic painting because I've started to run out of storage. What I normally do now  is look through them     and attack the ones that I don't like, with a Stanley knife last time I chopped up 50 paintings
