A stunning portrait , clearly a very talented young woman.I can understand what she means as there is more character in an older face , they have that been there done that look to them.

What a great talent your Granddaughter has Ellen.A superb portrait that captures every line and wrinkle us oldies reluctantly have.

Excellent drawing Lily, true skill.

A lot of work gone into this, excellent result Lily.

Very talented Lily.

You have great talent Lily and a very proud Gran, well done, it’s a terrific portrait.

This is superb Lily. You have painted the wrinkles brilliantly.

This really captures the life of the man - great work

Thank you everyone for lovely feedback, I’ll be sure and tell Lily. She goes back to college today after the summer break, she’ll be in her second year. It does take her a while to draw these portraits, but fabulous results for someone so young, who still doubts her ability! But, then again don’t we all!

Amazing Lily!

Thank you Sara for your encouraging feedback about Lily’s portrait drawing.

Thank you, Lauren. We’re very proud of her.
