Smike Streeton Age 24

This is a portrait of Arthur Streeton, originally by Tom Roberts. I did my best to copy it for a local exhibition coming up called Fab Fakes. The mission is to copy the work of a painter that's been dead for over 50 years. It was a great experience, like having a master class in portraits with Tom Roberts himself. I have a whole new admiration for his brilliance at portraiture.

This is the original

This is my cousin Liv when she was about 12, at Manly beach having just been boogy boarding.
