One Boy and his Dog

I found the reference photo for this in a 1961 Photography yearbook and the photographer was renowned Herefordshire man , Derek Evans who passed away in 2009. 

He donated his archive to the local council and they are currently sorting them all out for an exhibition.

I contacted them about this and they are happy that I use and sell it if , if I can. 

They do however insist that the image is not used further , for cards etc. 

I changed it about a bit.

Boston Spa Arts Festival 2017

This will be my second year at this festival. Really enjoyed last years which led to a follow up enquiry where I sold " Lady Grey" 

You're not allowed to show any work that you've exhibited there before so I'll hopefully have enough new work to show.


Which brings me to my current work in progress.  

Sir Paul as a young man. 

Here's the link to the festival.

October 13th -14th

Realism drawing

I cant believe its been so long since I posted on here. Time flies but I haven't been having fun !

Well maybe some of the time I have.

Anyway enough of the lame excuses , here's a drawing I did from a 1930's Photography Yearbook and the photographer was A Kuncius from Lithuania, I don't know too much about him but i'm learning a little more whenever I surf the net.
This took me about 16-20hrs but I've seen some Youtube videos that claim their drawings took 600hrs or 200hrs. That's insane.

Enjoy, thanks for looking
