    The colors in this painting are so vivid when you see it in person....

    Funny story...
    A couple of years ago I was there and as usual standing and contemplating this wonderful painting. Two young kids were in front of me looking too and one said to the other, "Yeah! This is it, this is the one." Just as I was going to engage them in conversation the other kid says, "Your old man actually LIKES this? He's nuts!". :p

    Anyone who watched this year's Sky Arts 'Portrait Artist Of The Year 2018' will be familiar with Hetty Lawlor's work. Only 18? Cripes - this lass is really good. Certainly captured Dave Tennant. One to watch, I believe.

    Diego Velasquez
    Portrait of a Pope Innocent X
    If you get a chance to see this painting in person, it will knock your socks off.

    Just for laughs, here is a study I did a few months ago. Clearly I am no Velasquez, I’m scarcely qualified to clean his brushes . . .
