  • What a lovely, sensitive portrait Rupert. David Hockney painted a portrait of his mum possibly at the same sort of age again with love and sensitivity , a painting i have never forgotten .

  • A beautiful drawing Rupert, full of flowing lines and sensitivity, as Sylvia says. Funnily enough, I'm watching old Watercolour Challenges on tv at the moment ( blimey, where did the time go? ) It's 1998 progs at the moment, regional, so you might come up soon. I remember watching you win all those years ago.

  • This is probably the last drawing of my mother that I shall ever do so I put a lot of care into it, especially into the delineation of the blanket which shows her form beneath it.
    By the way, I have aged a bit since the carefree days of Watercolour Challenge but I think you should still recognise me. My painting has certainly improved since then!
    Now that I am getting my life back together as it were, I am very keen to start doing regular watercolour demonstrations for art groups/societies both large and small. I haven't worked out my publicity strategy yet but if any of you could pass this on to the relevant quarters, I should be much obliged. My range limit from Coventry where I live would be forty miles if that is of any help. Thanks.
    And thanks for your continued support and encouragement here which I have not reciprocated as much as I feel that I should.
