For a Christmas gift to treasure for years to come have an original portrait painted of a loved one. Denis Williams is a portrait painter living and working in Chiswick. He specialises in painting realistic and highly detailed portraits of children and adults. "I work from photographic references which I take myself," explains Denis. "A painting will take me about seven days to complete so to have a painting ready in time for Christmas I will need 10 working days notice." Please visit his website for details.
