Twins team up for painting project

IDENTICAL twins Josh and Connor Newsome don't just finish each other's sentences - they finish each other's paintings.

The talented twosome have proved a big hit since their artwork went on sale at the Newburgh Gallery, Dodworth Road, a few weeks ago.

Some of their work has already been sold, and they've been commissioned to do paintings by friends, former teachers, and strangers on Facebook.

Josh, 16, of Belmont Avenue, Smithies, said: "I'll start a piece and show Connor, ask him how he thinks it's going, and he'll take over and have a go at it, it works the other way too."

Newburgh Gallery Shaun Rowley said he was immediately impressed with the work. "They're both very talented, and the way they do it, it's just something a little bit different."
