I thought the shopfront would be a big challenge but if you get the time & it doesn't dry you mad  ;D it would be great to see what you could do with it.

I never knew that about the beard - history as well as great artwork  ;)

Go & have lie down now in darkened room

Thanks Andy - great eyes on this version & you've given him more hair!

I'm sure you noticed that he appears to have a wonky left arm - do you think that is caused by the poor quality of the original image resulting in his own arm & the arm of whatever he is sitting on morphing into one another?

It's and enlargement that has been over sketched as some of the detail has been lost, artistic licence springs to mind.

I've made a slight adjustment  :)

The pencil lines don't help when looking for the defining lines.... I think this is more like it.

Great thank you Pat - I thought I'd put you off touching my photos after the bakers shop front!

You have even sorted out his wonky arm  :)
