Rolf Harris paints the Queen

Rolf Harris was commissioned by Queen Elizabeth II (Queen of England and Australia amongst other countries) to paint her portrait. Whilst most portraits of the Queen are very formal, this time Rolf Harris and the Queen had a good time chatting away whilst Rolf painted.

Art critics are dismissive as it is not the way they would have done it, but general response from the public is very good.

Well done, Mr Harris!

Yeah, I think it's quite good.
She looks very friendly and personal.

But, golly, she's aged!
Makes me feel old(er). : )

She looks like a typical grandmother - smiling and enjoying a sit down in the sun. Certainly quite different to the typical portrait.
