One from last weekend

A blast from the past

Whilst photographing an assignment yesterday, I bumped into my old art teacher Mr Tinley and apart from some gray hair he was just the same mad as ever. He was a really good honest proper teacher, who told you you were a "Twat" if you mucked about, he was liberal in his views and on many occasions discussed them with us. He was telling me that he fell out with painting about 15 years ago, and was thinking of starting again. He had on a easel a painting that he began some years ago, but never finished because of his fall out with the medium. I did him a deal and said if he finished it I would do a free photo shoot with the finished painting, he agreed and I can't wait to see it.

In the meantime here is one he made earlier!
