Drawing portraits is always a challenge but when they`re as beautiful as these two girls ,who sat for me consecutively last Saturday at a shopping mall in Hounslow, there is less margin for error.The pressure is on to do their beauty justice. The dark-haired girl is French & the blonde from ( I think) Poland.

One of the great bonuses for an artist drawing portraits in public places are some of the interesting people who dare to take the hot seat for a portrait. This 8o-year-old man who was born in Danzig is a survivor of the concentration camps in Poland. In 1939 children were rescued in an operation known as the `kinder transport`.He was the only one of his family to survive.
