I was delighted to find out one of my pastel self portraits was selected for the annual exhibition of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters. This wonderful exhibition is held at the Mall Galleries in London and is always a joy. So much variety in style and approach but a high quality throughout. It is a great show of contemporary portrait painting in the UK. Yesterday was the private view which I attended. Here are some photos of my favourite paintings out of many, many amazing works. The show runs until 20 May.
