    Hi James,
    Could go really crass here and say I like the Body, I won't, cos in an early life I did a bit on the design of that car. It was the first car body and chassis to be designed by computer and they got it so wrong that if you jacked up the car to work at the suspension, either the back or front window fell out. The chassis had so little torsional stiffnes that the whole body distorted and the over all car was plagued by problems and still people bought them so Brittish Leyland lost money on each car that they sold.

    Really nice drawing by the way and as Norman has stated the hair makes the drawing.
    Design is thinking made visual.

    I'm terrible at cars too. But going by the beautiful hair motion this model looks like she is doing very nicely in the wind tunnel test.

    hi,

    nice one - maybe it would be even better with the face shaded less realistic - flatter like the shirt - and the backgound blue a more 60s washed out light blue :b

    bb,

    Have to agree - the hair makes it.
    The lips are well done.
    Dunno why folks have to keep putting that blue stuff in the background ...
    "Intbel" ... aka Raymond. "Can't" is not an option.

    Compliance is futile. Resistance is futile. Just do your own thing an' ignore 'em.

    This is IMO a superb piece of work. The girl is neither striking nor beautiful yet I'm staring at her anyway. I'm wondering what she herself is staring at with that dark, almost malevolent gaze.

    I don't particularly like or understand the use of rectangles that appears in your work, but that's just my personal preference.

    There's an artist who recently displayed nothing in an empty gallery in Cardiff, I think it was. He said it was to make the visitor reflect on other galleries visited in the past. He was on the radio trying to defend his 'art' to the general public whose taxes paid for his public sponsorship and he didn't like the comments he was getting. If you don't like comments, however constructive, don't publish your work.

    I'd be interested to know what the little white rectangle is at top right...

    That piece in Cardiff was by Simon Pope and rather derivitive in my opinion, a little bit too much like Martin Creed's Stuff ... and I'm not to big on conceptual art ... most of the time it leaves me cold ... which is why I paint figuratively. And I don't think Simon really cared about the comments he was getting ... neither do I really. If you like my stuff whatever ... if you don't like it whatever.

    Art is totally subjective ... you either like or don't like. Any further critic/analysis into it is just mere conjecture as far as I'm concerned. Everything is implicit within the work.

    The rectangle at the top is my signiture and the date stamp.
