You are becoming a very portraitist, Michael.

These are very good Michael

Lovely drawing

Another lovely portrait, getting better and better.

Nicely done portrait Michael.

I was wondering if you would have to do t he whole family. Why not? The portraits are lovely.

Thanks Gudrun. Matty is Matty Farish, my granddaughters' half brother, so part of the 'extended' family if you like. He still calls me Granda. It's difficult to do just one and not the lot, as you say. I've been accused before of showing favour towards our Elle. She was the first.

Another great portrait Michael.
