Frans​ Hals updated haircut


This drawing reminds me of my chum Graham, who was my original business partner back in the days when all the drawing was done on paper. Graham still does all his drawing on paper and is a bit of an expert on coloured pencils, take a look at his stuff, it’s worth the trip. Man with coloured pencil

Naturally he looks nothing like this but that irepressible cheerfulness that this chap seems to have is perhaps what I am remembering.Graham’s hair has changed since those early days, but at least he has some, mine is just about hanging on. When I look into the mirror that the barber holds up to show me the back of my head, I note that the back garden is without much of a crop.
