    Hi my friend,i feel very honoured to be called an outstanding artist,i'm a very modest person at heart though but your words are very encourging,i always set out to give everything i've got to a piece and it seems like everything has come together really well for me on this subject,however i have never painted on canvas but i do watch alot of art programmes on sky tv and its suprising the little tips ive paicked up and used them in my own painting technique,many thanks for your kind words and inspiration,as i've said before here on the forum,such positive coments give me so much confidence and enthusiasum to drive forward the next project.

    Hi Marc,many thanks for the kind coments mate,i did say when i posted it that the pictures would'nt be up to standard :mad:,the walls may seem green but in fact its a shade of yellow i used to simulate the light from the street-lamp,i'm glad you liked it mate (y)

    I'm thinking of investing in a new camera this christmas,hopefully in the future i can post some decent pictures :unsure:

    Many thanks jeff for your kind coments,i've taken your point on board regarding the light,yes i have missed adding the whiteness to the edges of the broken glass,an oversight on my part,its the first time ive ever painted a figure like this and i'm well pleases with the way things turned out,(y)
