Thank you for the lovely comments every one. Jess, I think you are right about watermarking photos. I have had a few problems with people using my work and re-working the images. I've written to the offenders but have not had any reply's.
One of my brothers has done a lot of work with 'Creative Commons' and I think it is a fantastic idea. But I really dislike those people that use your work without your permission!

He is absolutely stunning. I'm a huge fan of textural artwork. There's something magical about the texture being able to change the look depending on which angle you are standing at.

Hi CurlyPops!!
I agree! Lots of controlled happy accidents!
It's great fun.

What a sweet picture! ((dabbing my eyes)) He reminds me of my son when he was little!
Sorry to hear about people lifting your work... it is such a worry and as you say people do not feel the slightest bit of guilt when they do it! Watermarking does sound like a good idea!

Oh Grace he is fabulous! I think this is your best yet...I don't know though - thank angel is pretty wonderful too! It really stinks when people steal...it is a shame to put a watermark on such a great piece of art, but these days it is almost necessary...

Grace, I love your drummer boy. Yes, I am pro watermarking and also you can add a very easy html thingy to your webpages to right click protect, so they can not save the images in the first place.
