Talented painter Craig Wylie can spend up to three months grafting away on each of his masterpieces. His portraits capture the tiniest details from his subject's face, from the dimples in their cheeks to any wrinkles around the eyes. Using just pencils, oil paints and charcoal, he creates his works of art on large canvasses - the largest he has done measured 6.5ft by 9.8ft. Craig has even painted a portrait of double gold Olympic medallist Dame Kelly Holmes. The skilled painter has been making large head-based portraits for the last six years and many of his subjects are friends. He works from images on his laptop screen and he says the ability to zoom in to extreme close-ups of the images is crucial.
