I Can’t Go For That….or can I ?

Way back when Dinosaurs roamed the Earth …  ok well back in the late 70’s and 80’s I am sure we all had our favourite music of the time.  One of mine that I still love today is Daryl Hall (and of course John Oates).

Before the days of the Internet, CD’s, MP3’s and so on, all we had were our ‘albums and cassettes’ which not only got scratched or warped, but in my case a lot of my cassettes seemed to unwind and even trying to piece them back together with little bits of sellotape never really helped.

If you lived in the right place you could often get to a concert, but for a lot of us all we had were the occasional music show, pop magazines or fan clubs!  How things have changed.

I often wonder what musicians today will still be played, or even still be playing themselves in another 25 – 30 years time?  And even more importantly will we still see our then idols in the same way.

Well I can say that Daryl has definitely er, aged well! (My opinion of course).  So for the last  few weeks, on and off, I have been working on a digital painting of him as he is now.  It was fun – and also helpful because I am still trying to get the hang of facial hair…*pulls own hair out*.  As they say, the more you do, the better you get, so I still have a lot more to do!  For now though, I share with you my portrait of Daryl Hall.  Oh… and the other thing that made my hair fall out – trying to do sunglasses! (As you can tell his are a little misshapen.)

All in all though, I am pretty happy with this one….and so on to the next!!
