There are few words that can describe beautiful portraits or art in general, I find myself completely taken in by art critics ornate language when describing art.
I am an enormous fan of Andrew Graham-Dixon, I discovered him in the 'Italy unpacked' tv series where he and Giorgio Locatelli explore the varied regions of Italy, sharing with each other their knowledge of the country's culture and cuisine (worth a watch).
I even attempted to get him in to talk about our work...goes without saying I failed ;-)
I digress! here is a fantastic portrait of a little girl, the family have, thankfully, bought the picture and intend having it enlarged quite big. I think it is just very very nice.
