Hasn't he got just the most amazing face and ability - good one Gudrun

Wonderful, well captured Gudrun. (As always)

Great portrait, Gudrun, as usual!

A good likeness of the legend, Gudrun, and I love the free-flowing lines. Excellent work!

If I was any good at portraiture he would be the one I would like to attempt! You’ve done him proud!

This beautiful Gudrun and an excellent likeness. May attempt hi. When my wrist is better.

Another good portrait, Gudrun.

Thank you for your encouragement Russell. Much appreciated.

Beautiful work Merry Christmas Gudrun
