Friday saturday sunday

Digital gig at a digital printing office. Very appropriate. I had to work very fast, I did 56 caricatures in 4,5 hours. The light was dim, the atmosphere OK. The manager was printed supersize. I don't think this was the best one I made that afternoon, but I liked the print so much I wanted to show it anyway.


This is Marieke with the finished painting I made of her. She and her father were very pleased with the result, and so was I.


Nothing better for relaxation than a bike ride through "Nationaal Park de Hoge Veluwe." We're still waiting for some serious frost, so we can go skating. When will that happen again, it's been such a long time:-(

you have every right to be pleased Marion, that painting of Marieke is ! I bet it will take pride of place in her bedroom, and will be treasured forever. Great job !

SUPERB portrait of Marieke! very nice.
These evening gigs are always in 'dim' lighting.- very trying! I had to do one on the HMS Illustrious in Portsmouth dock on thursday for the officers. That was interesting.(see blog) I normally find I can only do about 25-30 pics in the 2.5 hours. al

Matt: thanks! I've discovered that children and animals are a very good combination. Parents love it!
Al: That's a hilarious story!
I used to work for the british soldiers stationed in Germany, and I experienced the same you did. I didn't have to wait an hour but they too were very careful about letting people enter their territory.
