@Sophie-You are welcome Sophie!
David's work was simply amazing, I spent a long while discussing all his techniques with him and Katherine Tyrell, it was a great experience!

@Vonnie-Thanks Vonnie, glad you went to the show and happy you liked my portrait.

@J. Estevez- That's right-a real hard time indeed!

Katherine Tyrrell said...

Great post - I can se why it too you a while to get it up! The colour you've got in the paintings is extremely faithful to the real thing - well done!

adebanji said...

Thanks Katherine, you are the only one that understands. The post is still incomplete as I had to do away with comments on each painting. That's why you do a great job, blogging ain't that easy!
