Baroness Fluella Benjamin


A great likeness and lovely skin tones.

Lovely portrait of Baroness Fluella , I remember her too when my boys were small.

I had to google her as I hadn’t heard of her, but I appreciate it’s a lovely portrait with great skin tone.

Beautiful portrait Carole,

You have captured a great likeness. I love her lips and how they have texture.

A great portrait, Carole.

A beautiful portrait, Carole, with a lovely thoughtful expression.

Good portrait Carole. I think you have acheived what you set out to's in the eyes.

Super portrait, and yes, you did, her glance is definitely vulnerable!

That's great Carole, I've never heard of her but the likeness is impressive, the tones are good and you can really 'see' her character in the painting; excellent; Love and God bless, Andy xx

I remember her and a great likeness, I recognised it as Fluella Benjamin right away.

Good likeness and you've captured her essence I think

Amazing portrait Carole

Thank you so much everyone for your generous comments. For those of you who don’t recognise here, she was a great figure in Play School and is a staunch fighter for children’s’ rights and has a seat in The House of Lords. A very interesting character and was on Sky Arts Portrait of the Week, last Sunday. You can paint along and watch the programme ( number 11) on TV at 3.00 pm but it is also shown live on Facebook. Don’t know who the sitter is tomorrow but it’s sometimes very entertaining and well worth watching.

Wow - Carole, you have really created a beautiful portrait.

Super portrait of a beautiful lady.

Great likeness Carole, beautiful portrait.

Thank you so much Dennis, Shaun, Maureen and Carole for your lovely words. Much appreciated.

I remember watching her with my girls on children’s tv too many years ago! A lady of many talents Carole and you have achieved an excellent likeness.
