From Patrick Stewart to Parkinson - Yorkshire boasts some of the most famous faces in film and television, not forgetting those in sport or the art scene.
And now some of the county's best known faces have been captured in a very personal way on canvas as Sarah Clark explains:

Drinkers may have been toasting the Chancellor for lopping a penny off a pint of beer, but in one corner of North Yorkshire, there's one ale enthusiast who enjoys a regular tipple and it's just very difficult to gauge his reaction. What is clear though is he likes a drink. Jon Hill reports.
Simon Grant, from North Yorkshire, shows us his special bond with 11 foot, beer loving camel, Jeffrey:
A man from North Yorkshire has a best friend of a different variety - an 11 foot camel called Jeffrey.
Originally from Russia, it is thought that Jeffrey, owned by Simon Grant, from Sutton-on-the-Forest, is the UK's only pet camel.
Not only that, Simon read that Camels enjoy drinking beer, so after finding this to be true, Jeffery now gets a couple of pints mixed into his feed on special occasions.
Racing camels are often given a swig of beer before races to make them livelier.
Bactrian camels can survive temperatures of around -25 Celsius, and are instantly recognisable by their twin humps.
There are thought to be around two million living in the world, but only around 800 of these are wild, living mostly in remote areas of Mongolia and Siberia.
Jeffrey was bought as a birthday present for Simon's son, Tom, seven years ago, and was brought over from Holland. The family bought him for £3,000 and nursed him back to health, after Tom mentioned in passing he was fond of the animals.
Simon, a former racehorse jockey and trainer has trained the camel to be ridden.
Jeffrey could live until the ripe old age of 60, and will have his favourite tipple to thank in his old age.
Things are always looking up when you're a Giraffe and Behansin certainly had a lot of admirers when he celebrated his ninth birthday at Yorkshire Wildlife Park yesterday.
Visitors signed an over-size card and the birthday boy got a special treat of an oak branch to graze on to mark his special day.
Behansin, the tallest of the Doncaster-based Park's four giraffes who weighs in at 1,100 kg, also got time to indulge in his favourite past-time of scratching his long neck on tree branches before tucking into his birthday meal.
"He was a shy calf but has matured into a confident character, who is the dominant male of the group," said park director Cheryl Williams.
"He is very good natured and always a favourite with visitors so it was good to spoil him a bit on this birthday."
Behansin is looking forward to a long and contented life to follow in the hoof steps of his mother Matilda, who is 17, and his grandmother Dribbles who lived till she was 33, making her the oldest recorded giraffe in the UK.
