Last Friday I went and did some street portraits in town. I've decided that I am going to do really quick portraits this season. Hopefully I can do one in five minutes.
Friday was a practice run, and I did find a couple of customers. One elderly lady, and one baby. Babies are so difficult to portray. I know we can all see things in our own offspring, but mostly, all babies, look very similar to me. I think it's the lack of defining features. Never mind I managed to please it's mummy. That's the important thing.
On Saturday I went to Chichester, and spent several hours there drawing. Very busy place, and I did quite well.
I think I am going to enjoy these very quick portraits. I'm only charging £5. So they are affordable for most people. I am aware how tight money is during this recession.

This is just a quick post. It is warm and sunny outside, and there is lots to do in the paddock.
Thank you all for the kind comments, about Paul's song. I really do appreciate them, and what a confidence boost! I shall have to sing lots more for you. Only joking! I want you to keep visiting, not scare you away!
See you again soon I hope.
