FIT for Her Majesty the Queen.

Well, Doreen Bellamy certainly hopes so.

Amateur artist Doreen, 66, of Brincliffe Edge Road, Nether Edge, was moved to paint this portrait of the Queen during the build up to the Diamond jubilee celebrations.

Using a piece of 12in by 16in hardboard, Doreen created her masterpiece with a combination of oils, acrylic paint and varnish.

Then she put it in a rather regal-looking gilt frame.

And she’s pretty pleased with her work.

“I copied it from a picture I saw in a magazine,” she said.

“Now I intend to send it off to Buckingham Palace for the Queen to see.”
