Watch amazing time-lapse video of artist painting Benedict Cumberbatch

She starts with his hair, naturally...

Budding artist Allanah Claire has produced a time-lapse video of her latest creation – a huge painting of Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock. 


Claire moves from producing small sketches to the oversize final image, getting the iconic blue scarf, jacket (collar up, obviously) and tousled hair just right. 

You don’t need to be a detective to work out that this is a blooming good likeness.
