Took a trip down to London town to see the PB Portraits Awards at the National Portrait Gallery.
Lots of inspiring images and talented artist, gives you a real perspective of just how far you have got to go with your own art.
Not sure I agreed with the winning selection but like all art there is a lot of opinion out there.
For me the winning picture was painted by Jean-Paul Tibbles of his son Jean, A striking picture that grabbed your attention, in close second for me was the picture by Stephen Earl Rogers of his Nephew Haydn, taking its inspiration for the opening scene of the film Goodfellas it had a wonderful cinematic feel to it.
As there was no restrictions on picture taking this year I guess its got too hard to police folks and their phones , here are a few of the other paintings I liked.
