After reading all the comments, it seems as though I'm the only one who can see the real beauty in it. Yeah, right!

You know, when I sqint my eyes real hard it kind of looks like that guy on the "Please don't squeeze the Charmin" commercials.

This may not be the most informative thread but it sure is the funniest.

What a pain it is being in a different time zone to you guys - I miss out on all the action! This thread is seriously good value!!

Not only her portrait painter, but also her hairdresser ought to be locked up in the Tower. I mean - what kind of a hairstyle is THAT???

I've got an idea! How about using this as the next retouching challenge? "Improve This". Might be the easiest retouch challenge so far! Here's my entry, which I feels reflects modern Britain.

OK Sam. You win the trophy so far. I've had a horrendous day and didn't think much of anything could make me laugh at this point. BUT - you have me laughing now!!


Thanks - I needed that.

Jeanie

I think he exaggerated the hair just a wee bitty, don't you? Along with the sags, bags, droopy eyelids, six-oclock shadow, etc. EXACTLY like her Spitting Image puppet!!

I'm sure L.Freud has always enjoyed the general public's shocked reactions to his paintings ...

But, like someone said earlier, the queen should have known he'd do that ... silly old her!

All that said, I say "thanks" to both of them for giving us all such a good laugh.

So typical of the embittered Scots lampooning our beloved Queen from some African shangri la. What I want to know is how much was Freud paid for this flattering work, was it mentioned ?
