Erreurs et problemes d'exercice

1. On dit pas "une longue barbe frisee" ici, mais "une barbe longue et frisee".  'long/longue" devant  le nom = "Ouah!" comme "Quelle longue journee!".

Peut-etre s'il avait une barbe qui lui pendait jusqu' a` la poitrine, on pourrait dire: "Ouah! Quelle longue barbe!, mais ce monsieur a une barbe normale.

En plus, son pull n'est pas du tout "violet".

2.  On ne leur voit pas les yeux.

3.  En gros, il faut redessiner les portraits

Not sure what the concern about the positioning of 'longue' before the noun is - it is an adjective that usually goes before the noun, but can be placed after it as well (eg les cheveux longs) ? Normally, with multiple adjectives in French, they take/hold their 'usual' position - if this means multiple adjectives before or after the noun, the adjectives are separated by 'et'. 

Short and common adjectives that go BEFORE nouns (adjective position)

The question of whether the beard is normal or long is subjective. It is long enough to not be short - I have never heard anyone describe their beard length as 'normal', but maybe that is a generational or regional thing.

They are pretty basic drawings, that is for sure !
