Well, this one deserves to end up on the Facebook group ‘Terrible Art Found in Charity Shops‘. It started OK and then got worse and worse, but I guess this is what happens when you don’t paint for months and months and then think you can pick up a brush as if no time had passed. Maybe it’s just not finished and requires more hours, or maybe it should be consigned straight to the dark abysses of the Cabinet of Monsters.
One day I would love to be able to create a series of full on glorious oil portraits of the greatest EastEnders characters. Consider this an early study for the incomparable Shirley Carter.
