Greek Urn #1

What's a Greek Urn?
About 40 drachma a week!
(sorry, old Music Hall joke)

This is a little experiment I just cooked up this morning
to see if I could re=create the look of a fragment of ancient Greek pottery.
What do you think?

Can anyone tell me who the fruity chap portrayed is? Answers on a postcard...

Well, I can't read Greek anymore, but he looks wonderful. You've caught the look of a shard of pottery without losing humour or warmth.

You definitely captured the look! With a style all your own! Wonderful as always!

I think that you've recreated very well the style of this type of pottery, and the color is very good, too!!

(Sorry for the mistakes, I'm spanish jeje).

the first 3 letters are;
S igma
O mega
K appa....
