    Or not. The work of Peter Tarrent, Birmingham 1960s.

    Innocence and experience?

    I think you are spot on with your interpretation of this one.
    I have been feeling like the snarly one all day.:D

    Am waiting with bated breath for the others.

    I was bored the other night so I opened paint and doodled this Krazy Kat. Its kinda weird to draw with a mouse since you hardly have any control over the detail,LOL

    Shiloh, I like your sketch. You really must have a "hand" and "eye" for sketching.

    Confession: When I first read "draw with a mouse" I thought you were trying to draw while a pet mouse was scampering about near what you were drawing. :wideyed:

    "Her eyes were following me round the room till I nailed them back in place." :hilarious:

    Pretty obvious to me the artist had just broken up with something and had to get it out of his system, so to speak.

    I can't draw on the computer at all. My hand is not steady enough.

    I was just perusing some images of his work, and now I want/need his painting of the muckle coo.
    At least, I think it's his work.

    I think Peter R Tarrent is the one you want, Peter Tarrent is a Scottish landscape artist of a more conventional nature.

    I think this one depicts a fairground, or it will when I can find the picture.............

    I may have tracked down the artist who lives about 20 miles from me, and I have a phone number. I will try and find out more.
