Self Portrait 

Although it’s not quite finished, this is my entry for the 2019 National Portrait Gallery Annual Exhibition, sponsored by BP. It’s called Self-portrait with Turning Head. Yes, it’s me…as I looked a few years ago…quite a few, actually! I really wanted to capture the effect of movement of my head and the brush in the painting. Some of you will recognise the effect I’ve employed in earlier works, such as The Violinist.

The list of works accepted through to the second round of judging is announced on the 8th of February.

Wish me luck!
