Yesterday I went to London for the Private View of the annual exhibition of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters. This wonderful and prestigeous exhibition is always a treat and a great honour to have a painting selected for. My portrait of Paul had a wonderful spot on the wall in the North Gallery (there are 3 gallery spaces). Paul and his wife managed to make it to London as well to see it. The Private View was very busy (it always is), the weather was warm and it was a great day. The exhibition really shows a great variety of high quality portraiture. Some of the best portrait painters in the UK (and a few from abroad) show their skills and the range of styles and subjects is wonderful. There are formal portraits of Dons and Deans, celebrities, and ‘mere mortals’ in more adventurous styles. A real treat of painted portraiture.
Here are some highlights.
Royal Society of Portrait Painters, annual exhibition, Mall Galleries, The Mall, London. 16 April - 1 May.
