First time I've touched a pait brush since school, thirty-cough years ago.

I'm guessing not. :roll:

But it raises the question of who it is? Real person, photo - product of imagination/fantasy?

Tony, I wonder if you remember this pic of AC in his garden. The light-brown/blonde hair certainly isn't a match, not the considerable amount of it.
I eventually found it - about the 6th pic down.

Last suggestion was a bit silly of me. If it had come from AC's imagination/fantasy she would have looked like this...

More seriously - AC, that's very good!

The ability to draw realistically is one of those skills I would love to have (along with speaking a foreign language and playing a musical instrument) but I have always lacked the talent and the willingness to persevere.

Heh. It' was actually copied from a picture in a fashion magazine. I've been going to an art group a couple of times a week to kill some time and this was suggested as a study by the group's leader. :)
