Very good portrait and tribute Tim, and the parcel is excellent!

Good one Tim

Brilliant painting of another one of our unsung heroes!!

Great tribute to the postmen and women who do an amazing job.

Nice lighting and well painted.

Very good. A great tribute - I don't know how we would manage at present without our postmen/women and couriers - they are working flat out.

Thanks for your comments. Yes, I don't know where we would be without them. In a way, this crisis reminds me of the film 'The Admirable Crichton' where the butler saved the day when their world turned upside down. I hope to sketch the ASDA delivery van when it arrives next week.

For those who are isolating at home during the lockdown, apart from the bin men and shopping/parcel delivery drivers, the postman is most probably the only other person to be regularly seen out in the street. This is a study I painted a few years ago of a school-friend who is now one of my local postal workers.
