Thank you all for my lovely portraits, they are all wonderful and I will treasure each one.
What a hard challenge I set.
Here is my attempt, slightly experimental. This is my Mum, Betty, photo taken on her 20th birthday. My sister sent me this pic for my birthday, I had never seen it before. Made me feel quite emotional.
I used some retro fabrics which I had acquired, and made a collage. I then used artist transfer paper and photo manipulation to make a black and white image which I ironed onto the collage. Not sure if it has come off but an interesting experiment.
This is Gordon, John's Dad. John says his dad was not that scary! But I enjoyed doing this portrait, it is bigger than our size, but something a little different for me. I am keen to try to do more of these.
Thank you all for my "portraits"
