Queen is Ralf

Thanks to Marie for her comments on Rolf Harris' portrait of the queen, and how, actually, it looks a bit like Rolf himself.

But I think the dress looks good. Quite convincing, really. Anyway, I like Rolf.

I saw him on TV recently and he said in the interview that he had difficulties during the painting of the portrait with the face. He had to do quite a bit of revision to stop her majesty from appearing bozz-eyed and sticky-out-toothed. That's a very brave and candid admission.

However I think that the portrait also bares a great resemblance to actor Phil Davis.

And, for that matter, Little Britain character Ray "Yeyers" McCooney

** I found this post intellectually challenging: it was extremely difficult to avoid spelling "rolf" as "ralph" or "ralf". Even more so to avoid actually pronouncing it as the more correct "rafe".

  • Ralf? Is that what he's calling himself now he's a painter?

  • Never realised how much Phil Daniels looks like Rolf Harris. Also, it's not so much the eyes and the teeth - it's the Harris nose he's given her.
