Hi folks ..... you may have noticed I have changed my 'tinyhead'.
We celebrated the marriage of our daughter last Saturday...wonderful day...... we hired the services of caricaturist. He was great entertainment and did spledid drawings....about 6 or 7 minutes each.

Good caricaturists always floor me because they have to get the likeness, get the personality, exagerate it, do it all quickly (usually in front of a small audience) AND make it look effortless.

Those are great fun to watch being developed. I've never had one made, but it would be fun :)

Congratulations on your daughters marriage. I wish upon you no empty nest syndrome. Keep yourself busy with a full life and a lot of art work :D

Thanks everyone....seeing these guys in action is intriguing...full of confident strokes with the pen. He completed about 20, all of which were instantly recogniseable. Planning to print out a small booklet with them all in, to distribute to the family.

What a cool idea for the family for a rememberance. I love your tinyhead. I really don't see how they can do it all so fast. It amazes me.

I guess caricature is the ultimate in boiling images down to the essences. See what is unique about a person or thing, isolate that and exaggerate it, and fit it all together. It is amazing. Oh, and nice tinyhead, too. :)

Thanks Sharon and Oldthumbs....not sure where the idea to do it came from (must have been under the influence of P&I forum:D ), but we are very pleased with the results.

Thanks sassy......have so many things I want to try since joining WC, no chance of empty nest syndrome :)
