No Fresco Here
It did not take Tonto long to become exasperated, assembling and arranging outlines of features to form composite images for the local constabulary. Yes, as much as this sketch artisan hates to admit it, times were a little hard and extra cash came easily helping the fuzz to identify suspects. Of course that was until an artistic dispute ended the matter. Only a dreamer consenting to dream of the actual world, like myself, could bring out the true superb draughtsman ship, subtle lifelike color and deft paint handling which brought the suspects to life and revealed their true character. My boss, on the other hand, said he wanted me to use the established system and prepare a series of simple line drawings conforming to description of suspect, only. Humpf?!
