Norfolk artist Robin Elvin, who was famous for his painting of The Samphire Man and of musicians, Royalty and sport, has died.
His best friend Don Loseby said: 'His wife Lucy phoned me with the news. We had been best mates since school and worked on the doors together. He was one of the best people I knew and what a talent. It's like having your left arm ripped off.'
Mr Elvin, who lived in Downham Market, was born in Birmingham in 1957 and brought up in north west Norfolk.
He was also an accomplished musician playing as a guest with several blues bands.
