A blast from the past


Superb, Marjorie.

Love the lively features Marjorie, especially those intelligent, looking eyes.

Beautiful portrait, Marjorie. The eyes have it. Bri

Super portrait, Marjorie.

Very well done, Marjorie - such a striking portrait...

Wonderful Marjorie, you’ve achieved such a natural look. Cameras do have a nasty habit of cooling down images.

Many thanks for the supportive comments. I really enjoyed having a go at this, this morning.

Lovely use of blues.

Fantastic portrait - I read the incredibly touching interview with him this morning, and I think you've caught him beautifully. A lovely man, a huge talent.

Terrific portrait Marjorie, very well painted. I like the ‘unfinished’ background which to me suggests work still to do, for him not you!

A portrait right up my street. Skin tones great and the eyes have it!

Sylvia, Robert, Tessa and Heather - thanks again.

Don’t know of this guy, but a super little painterly oil sketch Marjorie.

Great portrait, Marjorie. Very expressive and storytelling eyes.

Great work Marjorie, one of my favourite acoustic guitarists

Thankyou Alan, Raissa and Russell. Alan, I'm sure you'll know " If you need a friend", " Fire and Rain" etc. Now, I have to decide....should I slink upstairs to paint or do other things need attention?

I think you have captured his sensitive and humble character Marjorie. I listened to an interview he did last week and he sounds as gentle and charismatic as he looks.

Beautiful expressive portrait, Marjorie.

Thankyou Fiona and Cesare, I'd love to see him in concert.

Great portrait, Marjorie
