hi, Col, thank you, I was sketching it with the HB pencil and got carried away shading, had to go back with a darker pencil in a few places :} I find myself making a sketch and first thing I start shading, difficult for me to just sketch without shading :}

Hi Loretta - He was such a handsome actor and you have caught him beautifully. There is a wonderful film with Marlena Dietrich - is it Morocco? They were superb together. When Marlena was last here in Melboune I waited to see her to 4 in the morning. And, I got a kiss. Luck boy I am. 5 ***** from Mike

Artist Statement
for Loretta Lytle
Loretta LytleI have been drawing since 12 yrs old, I am now 82 yrs old. When I was 12 yrs old a parent of a classmate of mine told me to trace a picture of a pinup she drew for me and keep tracing until I felt I could draw it. that was how I taught myself how to draw the figure. I have drawn many nudes and pinups since then, I still have the first one I did at 12 yrs old. I have drawn mostly in pencil but have done some in colored pencil, pastels and watercolors. Most of my drawings have been of people and fashions. I have also been interested in drawing flowers mostly Roses. over the years I have done people, flowers, and landscapes in colored pencil, pastels, watercolors,oils and now acrylics. I have been doing a lot of artwork lately cause there...
I have noticed PopArt seems to get less comments than other forms of art, is it because it is thought of as a 60's thing or is there another reason?
This very cheeky Graham and I love it,, especially the bright colours. No doubt about you having a go at anything and coming up trumps every time. Big... view answer
