Okay, I'm already starting to feel a little more "at home". In these two portraits you might notice they're the same pose and attire. I looked at a black and white photo and just...expanded from there. I'm not going to say who's photo I printed off as it does not look anything like the man yet (although one of my kids exclaimed: Is that...? And was right?!) but I will revisit this one! I'm going to have to take a lot of care with his facial proportions, and when I nail it, I'll let you know (or I won't need to - you'll be able to figure it out! lol) All the same I quite like the portrait!

It does so look like him, and it's Pierre Trudeau right?

The eyes are so him.

If I'm wrong forgive me.
