Nice portrait. Lovely lighting. Well done. Cropped a bit short at the bottom for me. But a fine portrait nevertheless.

Superb portrait Bill, well taken

Nice one. Did she pose for you at all or did you grab the shot as she was being drawn? You've almost got total eye contact but there is just a vagueness that suggests her mind wasn't entirely on you.

True story... I went to Barcelona with a group of friends a few years back and watched a guy try to pick the pocket (handbag actually) of one of my friends...

Amazing how "Oi!!" translates so well... He got quite a shock and pegged it double speed...

Quite apprehensive about pickpockets prior to going, however lots of Police.
The young girl was concentrating on the artist, her expression caught my eye, she very rarely was distracted
