Wish I could, just start again but I won't , probably leave it for now and come back later. It says in many an artist book not to point out the mistakes, so I won't but there are some !

Heres a portrait of star of the c4 programme head teacher Mr Mitchell. It is an acrylic and only measures 7x5 so I was happy to get some kind of likeness despite it being a close up of just the eyes. It might not be the best likeness but it's a likeness especially after I've told you who it is ! Ha

Back to my favourite subject and my favourite subject !
I love portraiture and Morgan Freeman just screams out to be painted , drawn , sketched etc.
I have mad him my target on more than a few occasions, he just appeals to me for some reason.
This is a willow charcoal sketch A3 size that's just about 16 x 12 inches

When I was a kid the only football the local shop sold and the only one we could afford was what we affectionately called the penny floater. This was a cheap thin oversized football that a good strong wind would play havoc with. They came in two colours white or red. If you were really posh you could just the one with the proper football markings. You also had to keep out of the way of anyone smoking as a wayward cigarette would see you holding a flat piece of plastic that once resembled a football. As did the smallest thorn. Ah those were the days !
