A curse

A curse

Seems a delightful chap but well captured.

I think the man looks very scary and has very wild, frightening eyes. Wonderful portrayal of somebody you wouldn't want to meet in the dark. Would love to see your rendition of Boris Michael.

Thanks Gudrun and Carole. I might have a go at that Carole.

Michael, I think I may have met this fellow, in a working capacity, I managed to escape a curse ...I think. I like his Titfa.

I wouldn’t want to meet him any time soon, Michael. Love the colours though. Looking forward to seeing Boris.

Thanks Elle. I'm gonna have to do this aren't I?

You do make me smile Michael. This is a great portrait though but he looks really scary!

Thanks Margaret. I'm pleased I make you smile.
