Friday Favourites………………

With this year’s BP Portrait Awards being concluded, and a most remarkable and beautifully painted image taking first prize, I thought maybe a small retrospective glance at a past years’ works was in order. I have chosen 2009 rather randomly, as it was the first to catch my eye.

Sue Rubira  –  Maggie

Edward Sutcliffe  –  On Assi Ghatat

Anastasia Pollard  –  Kate

Shany van den Berg  – It Is I Gladys

Lee Fether – Gail Porter

Donald Macdonald  –  Broken Heart

All of these images are from the National Portrait Galleries Archives and can be viewed along with a short biography of the artist and the artist’s statement for each piece.

I have selected the portraits which resonated with me, your choice from the 51 paintings might be totally different from mine……….have a look and see which your 6 favourites would be.

Have a wonderful weekend.
