Portrait of the best grandpa in the world!

I have just started working on a large portrait of my grandpa. He will be 90 years old this year and he's still fit and full of fun. I've decided to place him on his favourite walking route on Windmill Hill in Alton although I nearly put him by Buttermere Lake which is his favourite valley in the Lake District. He loves walks in the countryside so that's where I'm putting him! It was difficult getting a good photograph of him and I'm having to use an amalgamation of different photos to get the right pose and facial expression along with his trademark 'Bill & Ben' hat.

I can't believe we're already a whole month into 2010. It's too late to wish you a 'Happy New Year' but not too late to welcome you to my blogspot. This is a new link from my newly revamped website portraitsofpeople.net that I hope will keep you up-to-date on my latest commissions on and how they are progressing.
