BP Portrait Award

Yesterday I went to London. I walked around the V&A for a few hours and then popped in to the National Portrait Gallery to see the BP Portrait award. It was very good, amazing to see. One of the paintings was over 2m tall it was sooooooo amazing, the detail! ah! loved it!

It was also encouraging to see not only photorealistic paintings are being shown in the exhibition.
