    love your Whitby painting – I live by the sea in the south of Turkey and that would definitely be on my sitting room wall – also really loved your illustrations. Take care Paul

      Dear Paul and John

      Nice to have your comment! Thank you! It was great to meet you in Ankara both behind the scenes and on stage. I really congratulate you both on the show. For what it is worth…

      I think….

      You could both heighten the mime aspect of what you do. By that I do NOT mean mime tricks like pretending to be in a glass walled room. What I mean is staying within the mime role rather than being in mime one moment and then being teachers with painted faces the next. I think….Paul you are a natural mime, there were times when I felt you were in the great tradition made famous by Marcel Marceau but actually going back to his teacher De Krug (that is the sound but the spelling may be all wrong) one of my life friends was a fellow student of Marcel Marceau with this teacher De Krug in Paris…anyway, it is that wonderful ability to emphasise and to heighten which you have…but you went in and out of it…and I am wondering what would happen if you stayed in it. Then John would emphasise the great, heavy, pudding presence with the sad mouth…adn I htink it should be painted on a little bit more clearly as strong shape of sad mouth…not sketchy.

      Then maybe instead of the text being just turn taking you might consider making the text characterful according to the two characters that you are creating for us…the lythe, jerky, rapier, Paul and the hard done by lumpy old hippy John.

      YOU didnt ask for my feedback adn I offer it only with good will. If you change NOTHING it s a great show.

      Looking forward to seeing you at ISTEK. Andrew

    Hi Andrew,
    I visited your site and spent some happy moments (about an hour, actually) looking at your paintings and drawings. I wonder how you caught that wave in Whitby – that’s an amazingly enchanting picture for me. I also like your paintings about hills and winds and skies.
    It was just a couple of days ago when I realized why I like some of my niece’s and other little children’s nonfigurative water paintings. When they do not try to copy something from the world, but the paintings are “only” spots of different colours, flooding into each other. And I realized it is more their own soul than the copied world. They show with the paintings what is inside them – the colourful, wonderful sea of love and light.
    Well, that is only a very clumsy way of putting into words what I felt, really.
    Anyway. Thanks for sharing your work, and thanks for the inspiration.

      Babi! What a pleasure for me to learn that you visited me and and very special pleasure that you visited my gallery! Very few people seem to be interested in my paintings…interestingly for me most people go to my articles adn particularly the article on warmers! So I am delighted you went to see the pictures. When you have a moment please try to explain again your idea about childrens paintings related to mine…sorry I’m a bit slow…can’t quite catch your idea. Hoping you are well and happy. Andrew

    Found the paintings of huddled figures (e.g. the one at the top of the page) both disturbing and intrigueing . Liked the birds painted on the rock (though it is not what it seems) . The brightness of the moon I liked too . A wide variety of pictures .

      They are based on President Ahmins way of executing people…stand them in a line and give the second one a hammer to kill the first one with…it is the most extreme archetype of man’s cruelty to man I know of.
