So much better than a hundred photos, a memory for life, and a lovely young face.

Stunning you are very talented indeed

A stunning portrait. His parents must have been thrilled with it Mark.

Another great portrait, very skillful.

You've done a great job - obviously, can't vouch for the likeness! But I presume you wouldn't have shown it if it didn't capture the lad - like those eyes: not little pin-points such as you usually only get from a photo, but softer and more believable. Agree very much with Tessa Gwynne - better than a hundred photos.

Well painted and expressional.

Mark, great work. Love the palette, deliberate brush strokes and tonal variation.

This is Luca my grandson at the age of 5. I painted this portrait on quite a large canvas 80cm x 80cm as a gift for my daughter and partner.
