THE painting I think captures one thing P.Charles said 'she smiles with her eyes'. Its a good painting in that sense and definitely doesn't try to make her look younger.The DM Mona Lisa reference seemed like a blantant attempt to lead readers to make negative comments. I hope they don't fall for the hype.

I LOVE the portrait. It captures the spirit of HRH perfectly. Just wish we had a full version of it.

I waited for a portrait of the DOC for a loooong time. I must say i'm not disapointed: it's beautiful.

As usual the D... Mail chose a strange comparision... Well for once it's not Diana

The portrait is beautifully render and captures the Duchess of Cornwall spirit in her eyes. I don't think it is realistic though. It shows her younger and her prominent chin is downsized. I hope I don't offend.

I think the chin appears downsized because of the face-on style

Very few portraits show the person as they are if you judge them against media photo's!

Cameras don't lie. But you don't sense a person's essence either. I remember reading that the Duchess is more becoming in person.

That's a good portrait. Have a bit of rough strokes and IMO, captured her essence rather than an exact physical copy. I'm not a fan of her helmet hair, but actually liked how it looks on canvas.

The portrait is great - i love it!
Maybe you can discuss if a photo or a pic can lie or not but if you ever have seen Camilla you know that the painter did a really good job!

LOVELY portrait! Though I'm not particularly taken by the eyes. They don't quite look like her eyes, imo. Or perhaps its the nose...I'm not sure...perhaps it does look like her up close. I wouldn't know personally.

A true success though.

I quite agree. For a start they make you look fatter than you actually are.

It is a wonderful portrait of the DOC.
And about time too.
