So happy and proud that my portrait of Adam has been short listed by the British Royal Society of Portrait Painters for the Annual Exhibition 2023 at Mall Galeries in London.
Thanks to the judges! The final round will be in Mall Galeries London in March.
Special thanks to my partner Franco for all his support and advice.
Thanks to Adam, who inspired me with his gaze and the bunch of hair that swirls down on his face. Mesmerized by the firmness of the line of light from the cheekbone left to the forehead.
The Royal Society of Portrait Painters was founded in 1891 by the leading portrait painters of the day. Being dissatisfied with the selection policies of the Royal Academy for its annual exhibition in London, they formed a new body to be concerned solely with portrait painting.
