The third sketch of the two heads is terrific. Very good! The characters look very Dutch. The ladies with the hats...hmmm, where is that from. I know I've seen it before.

It well presents the joy of using the simple pencil!!! Very nice work. The lady trying on the hat...it has the flavor (the image, not the hat) of Renoir?

As far as I can remember its outta my head. (the miliners), I do that a lot and will post more in the coming weeks.
I know I'm shot but I'm sure I sure that I havent seen it elsewhere, reminds me that I like degas though and think of his work often while I sketch.The picture of the old man was done while I was admiring a rembrandt painting and I put my dads face to it.Thought about doing a painting of it but never did,
Posted more drawings in the creativity forum with maturity matter but not offensive, just funny; may explain somethings

Dear Corby
I think I own every book that was printed by degas (more than 8 or 9) and if ever anyone influenced my thinking it would be him, but renoir, maybe, he wasn't that bad either, eh?
