A2 oil on canvas board. I think it looks a bit cartoonish because the colours are a bit flat... a better artist than me could probably glaze some extra colours into it but I had an experiment and it went so badly I decided not to risk trying it on here. I think it looks very much like who it is supposed to be, they say the eyes are wrong (I made them too blue but it was a deliberate choice as grey isn't contrasting enough.
