Acrylic on canvas

Bruno’s Mum Elles is a close friend and I also painted her portrait some years ago (See Elles and Jack in Other Work.) I can see a strong resemblance between Elles and Bruno, but it wasn’t until I was painting Bruno’s portrait I could see exactly why. I noticed the same angles and planes of Elles’ face and the very same blue eyes staring back at me from Bruno’s younger face.
