    Opinions on this illustration

    I was mooching around a car boot on Sunday and happened across this illustration by an artist called Alexandra Jacobs and after a google search she is now retired and from Devon. I don't expect it to be worth much but I just liked it and to my untrained eye thought it was quite detailed. Any artists care to give me their opinion please?



    I'll wait to hear what you say before I let on how much I paid for it!

    Where are the scoring rings?
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not using it in a fruit salad.

    Amateurs practice until they get it right. Professionals practice until they never get it wrong.

    Hopefully it was cheap enough to use as a target!
    Sorry!

    I actually said it makes a change not to be looking at it through a scope and the seller was not impressed!!

    Like I said my untrained eye! Good job I only parted with a quid but beauty is in the eye of the beholder as they say!! It's alright for the man cave.

    If you like it that's what counts mate

    It's every bit as good (if not a damn sight better) than some of the utter bilge we see going for millions through the likes of Sothebys. At least you can tell what it is

    Pity old Red Dot is still not posting on here, as I always got the feeling he could be a bit of an artist with an opinion which I am sure he would of shared with us.

    Its head is too big for its body it is! And its tail not in proportion. But...photoshop scoring rings on it and you'll have a winner!

    Ok so it`s not done by Piccasso.
    Wish I had a little bit of the talent that the artist has.
    Stratts .. you liked it enough to buy it .. that`s all that matters.
