FolkstoneSince a boy, Syd Haslam has always enjoyed putting pencil to paper and often saw it as an opportunity to avoid school work. Syd showed an early talent for life drawing during his time in the Royal Navy during the Second World War. He supplied his fellow sailors with “pin-ups” for their walls. This ability to portray the human form has stayed with him and today he regularly goes to life classes in Bolton, his home town. “Life drawing requires discipline and perseverance” is one of Syd’s sayings.
