It was a gift from their granddaughter to his wife and the photo had been taken in the seventies. It was very small and I couldn't see any detail, particularly in the eyes, when I scanned it and tried to blow it up. Fortunately my brother in law has a programme which enhances images as long as he has the original photo and he got it to a good enough quality for me to do the portrait.... technology eh!!!!
In the end I quite like this one as it captured the essence of him and more importantly the family were delighted. Will post another posthumous drawing soon!!!
