Nasty piece of work


I think she came to our place when she left you Michael..... Good sketch. (-:

Great characterisation Michael!

Great expression there, Michael. With that on our faces most of us would look like a nasty piece of work. Excellent drawing.

You can tell exactly how you felt about her … I would too!

You have a great talent for depicting particular expressions. We can all relate to the people you paint, as we all know someone similar Michael. This lady reminds me of a horrible P.E. Teacher I had at school. Brilliant as usual Michael.

Good drawing and good expression, Michael.

Thank you all for your kind comments.
