A lovely sketch Barry, would look good as an 0il

Yes I think you're right many thanks David

Great atmosphere Barry.

Well drawn... look forward to the next step .

Oh yes definitely an oil! Marvellous work Barry.

I like this as it is Barry. It has emotion and is skilfully drawn

Thank you Carolyn I hope I will be able to. Have the best of both with a good drawing and oil painting.
