Very very good 15 mins Paul, so expressive. I could say " if Carlsberg did hand exercises......".

Thank you Richard for you kind comment, I would much prefer a good old fashioned British Ale.

So natural with great expression Paul.

Lovely sketch Paul, you can see the concentration in his face.

Carole and Val thank you for your comments

It looks like a cold day as his shoulders are hunched whilst he mends his nets. Great sketch Paul.

Great sketch, I too sketch something from life every day to keep mind and body exercised.

Spencer , Russell and Thalia thank you for your kind comments. It a really good way to keep your concentration , skills hand eye coordination etc going . But most importantly it fun , sometimes you get a really good sketch and it ends up as a painting.

Love this sketch Paul

Thank you Romila your comment is really appreciated.

Hang on Studio Wall

A4 paper, pencil sketch done in 15 minutes as a part of my daily hand exercise, apart from the hands the eyes and mind is also exercised. Old fishermen repairing his next , some hole are not meant to be there.
