As I’m having such a good time using my digital oil painting program, I thought it was about time I did another poortrait.

Now, long time visitors know that I’m hopeless at portraits, but I like to have a go every now and then. They tend to turn out more like caricatures than portraits, but I don’t mind that. And as stars go, this one is way up there! Oops – don’t want to give the game away just yet!

The question, as always, is just who is this poortrait meant to be of? Hazard a guess and leave who you think it is in the comments.

I will let slip the true identity in about a week’s time. As usual, I will not be offended by any incorrect guesses.

    1. Moonee Ponds? Is that where she’s from, Raili? She must have mentioned it at some point, but I don’t recall it!
      If it is Dame Edna, I hasten to add…

  10. Ha!!! BRILLIANT Tom! Well done you clever chap.
    It’s as if she’s here in the room, possum!
    You should send her that, via her agent. She’d love it.
