They are brilliant, so full of life, tell your cousin from me he (or is it she?) has a real talent. I like them all, but the second one of the woman sleeping looks almost 3D. very clever. x

Intriguing impressions and imagery.  I would definitely like to see a show of his.

Might even buy the kindly old man in the blue shirt--reminds me of Vic--or the sprightly, impish Irishman with the larger.  5-stars.

Wow....I love drawing too, the shading on his pics is brilliant.
Does he draw from photos or from imagination?

I really do! They’re really good, imaginative and eye-catching. I cannot draw for shit and really appreciate people who can create a picture out of thin air.

Thanks for sharing them and be sure to pass on all these great comments to the talented artist. cheers

Is this just a hobby? These are really, really good, definitely a market for them. Quill's idea of a show is a great idea.

I like the drama of her paintings: the first 3 women have ash-white, blood red and corn yellow hair respectively. 

Pays due attention to detail & the general standard is high.

So much potential!

You've posted that photograph of your uncle, the boxer. I remember it. He reminds me of Michael Schmidt, reporter for New York Times.

I recognise Girl with a pearl earing, David Attenborough, Judy Garland and the gorgeous Audrey Hepburn....all painted in his own style which is great.
I imagine the couple laughing into each others eyes is a wedding portrait of his mum and dad.
Thats the thing about a good painting, it makes you paint a story around what you see.

It does, I agree...with his hair uncombed.  That connection escaped me.

Can you tell her I’m jealous? I wish I could draw or paint or make some kind of picture that didn’t look like a child drew it. Sad
