Grandpa has his portrait painted over Zoom (1min video)

Following our recent feature on top UK portrait artist Aldo Balding we were delighted that my aunt and uncle commissioned Aldo to paint a portrait sketch of my grandfather.

Aldo and Grandpa had two Zoom “sittings”, which Grandpa says he really enjoyed because they chatted away about everything from Carcassonne (where Aldo lives) to watercolour painting, which Grandpa adores.

And what a painting! Not only has Aldo captured how my grandfather looks but the picture radiates his character – it really feels like Grandpa is there!

If anyone else is interested in commissioning a portrait sketch either of themselves or of their family or friends the details can be found in our earlier post “Fancy having your portrait painted by a top British Artist?”
