  • From the pattern on the tweed cap to the teeth on the zips, this is superb work. I'll raise my own cap to you John. Wonderful.

  • Every time I look at your paintings John, I gasp out loud. They are so wonderful, your detail is superb.

  • That's a level of finish I should describe as "complete" - and yet your work doesn't look laboured or over-done.... just goes to show that "less is more" is not an unbreakable rule. There is no way in the world that I'd ever paint every tooth on a zip, and while I wonder if I even could, I know I'm not going to try - but you make it work, without reducing a painting to the boringly photographic....

  • Wow - such detail John. I think portraits of "mature" people are so interesting as they have their character written in each line of the face!
