A great subject for a live caricature

This man has the most infectious laugh on earth, I wish I had a recording of it to listen to when I`m feeling down.

Its the run in to Christmas & I`m getting orders for presents already.I bought some mince pies in a Marks & Spencer the other day, madness.The above is a portrait I did live of a shy little Polish girl in a shopping centre in Luton.The other is of a beautiful girl drawn on the same day-only 11 years old,I don`t think I did her justice.

Lonely cat

I did a multiple portrait of 2 cats for a lady in EastLondon, she kindly sent me a photo of one of them snuggling up to the framed job, unfortunately the other cat died, so perhaps he was doing it for company.

Back to Blighty!

I have been a blog reader for a while, so now here goes my first ever blog.
Just back from the south of France,we stayed at the cute little house I sketched in watercolour and pencil.
Hard to adjust to rainy,cold England again! It sure was hot down there, only one dodgy day out of 3 & a half weeks. It was so hot I couldnt find the energy to sketch or paint, I just managed to get done the 5 commissions that HAD to be done.
