7×11 inch portrait of The Auld Yin (Alex Gardiner), done with pastels on Pastelmat.
This is my tribute to a wonderful, generous character that many of you may have crossed paths with on RedBubble. He brings tirelesss support, encouragement, a charming wit and humour, to so many artists, myself included. When I stumbled upon his wish to have a portrait done by me about a week ago, I was so touched and humbled, and how could I resist the opportunity to repay, in a little way, some of the kindness he has shown to me and others. I don’t have the way with words that The Auld Yin does, but hopefully, in this case pictures speak much louder than words!!!
