BP Portrait Awards 2019

A bit of a regular thing for me,  taking a day out to go to London and see the BP portrait Awards and the Summer Exhibition at the RA. I will post some  stuff from that a bit later.

Lots of super hyper realistic paintings in this years Exhibition, you have to admire the technical ability of the artists, but for me you can’t beat a few obvious  brush strokes in a portrait.

You cant go agreeing with the judges and this years winner did not get my vote. But what do I know.

Great exhibition I always come away with great admiration for the artist and some inspiration to keep having a go at this art stuff.
