William Hill, Sheila's great grandfather,I have done a lot of work on his portrait, especially around the eyes. The eyes were not obvious on the old black and white photograph (circa 1930) that I was using as reference so I have had to use some guesswork to try and make them look right, so I have had to paint them several times, but I think that they may be about right at the moment. There is still some more work to be done on the rest of the painting. Great grandfather Hill isn't done yet.
