The Roman Emperor Vespasian. I've a feeling I've made him look more benign than perhaps he really was.

Looks sufficiently ruthless to me, in spite of his laughter lines.

Good.

I enjoy drawing portraits from classical statues, as I get the impression the best of them (the statues) are very accurate representations of what the people really looked like. I 'colour' them buy giving them eyes and hair, but otherwise leave them pretty much as the sculptor intended - though it's possible the statues were originally painted anyway, so maybe my drawings look more like the original statues than modern photos do. Who knows.

Thanks Paul. Yes, that mouth - something sly about it.

Cracking work!
"If you want to write, write it. That's the first rule. And send it in, and send it in to someone who can publish it or get it published. Don't send it to me. Don't show it to your spouse, or your significant other, or your parents, or somebody. They're not going to publish it."
