Who painted the portrait, or Whose child is this?
A real painter is always looking for a suitable sitter. It is much easier if an artist is a parent, as the suitable models run nearby. Moreover, they are constantly running... But if only they ran!

And he clutches at paints, pencils, pastels, and starts drawing... Let`s see if you can identify the right pair: portraitist - his child?12 questions48 passed the test
