"Hiya Brenda, Don't trust projectors, especially for portraits. Unless you get the image absolutely square-on, they can distort the subject. Like elongating someone's face for instance. Well done with your grandson's pics. Mark"

I do wish you so well Brenda.   I hope the painting at least helps you in some way, though I believe it's a high hill to climb.  And thank you for such a lovely compliment on my watercolours.
