The rebel

Monday morning, in the car park of Morrisons. Warm and sunny for a change . Lots of people watching me draw . Met a couple who told me they did their courting down at the burn and stories of tickling trout, ¬†poaching and keeping a eye out for the police. The mornings best comments however came from an old man who looked at my sketch and told me how rubbish it was, telling me I should go back to college and that my drawing was not just bad,¬†but really bad. In fact he said I should ask Tony Hancock ( he plays an artist in the film The Rebel, trying to sell his paintings on the left bank in Paris ) to ‘help yous oot’. Thats me told then! A quality heckle. Wonderful, funny morning.
