My son has asked for my self-portrait done from life and not a photo for Christmas. This is a toughy as I have to decide what I want to reveal about myself. The bullet points above are my daughter R's considered repose to the first small sketch I attempted. Sigh ...

I assume “R” won’t be getting a present this year…;)

That’s a fine sketch Lorna, you’ve certainly captured some of your character, a very promising start…it’s a very challenging Christmas request…knowing what to try and reveal…and how fully… is always a tricky issue…can’t wait to see how it develops :)

I think you look far more fetching than this :-)

I'm with Lucy - yes, it's you, but it's a very negative view of you. Maybe your face is one of those that is transformed by a smile? And your nose is not upturned in that way.
