I went to the NPG to see the Taylor Wessing portraits on Sunday Ray. That exhibition was, as usual good, and better than the last few years my wife and I thought. She had a portrait exhibited in it some years ago when it was the Kobal. Anyway, I am sidetracked.....as a bonus we got to see the new painting and had a good look. there weren't too many people there surprisingly. I thought it was pretty awful, hamster cheeks did come to mind. It just wasn't her. She only got to choose from three artists which seemed a bit poor, and the artist only had two sittings, why was that? Apparently he did most of it from photos. Perhaps done on his iPhone (I jest, I hope).

Anyway yours is much better Ray. Who was the photographer?

Many thanks for the kind feedback...really appreciated....

I tried to replace the image as posted because although the original had eyelashes to the bottom of only one eye, it looked odd to me after posting...so here is the other with eye lashes introduced

Best wishes

Hi Jules

It is disappointing to find that the painting as commissioned is not receiving good feedback; and from so many people. She is a very pretty lady and sad that the painting does not appear to capture that beauty.

I simply googled for an image and got this one through this link...

Not sure who took the picture but a nice candid shot I think.

Hope you are doing ok...nice to hear from you.

Best wishes as always

Ray
