BP Portrait Award 2016
at National Portrait Gallery
Until 4th September
There are some outstanding entries on show in this year’s BP Portrait Award exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery. The award is one of the most prestigious in portraiture with the winner taking home not only the award but also the £30,000 prize and a commission worth another £5,000. At the opening this week I took the chance to get up-close to a few of the 53 portraits in order to take in some of the beautiful details.

A wonderful exhibition which I know I can go to – can’t wait for it to come to Edinburgh!

Such wonderful galleries in Edinburgh. I’ll be hitting a few when I’m up for the Book Festival in August!
What remarkable talent. They are fabulous.
