The National Portrait Gallery are currently accepting entries for the BP Portrait Award 2016.
The closing date is the 2nd February 2016, so for the next 2 months I am going to paint a portrait every day in the hope that I will start to get some results worth entering. My aim is to get a level of realism mixed with a painterly, even sketchy element that opposes the realism causing a dialogue within the painting.
I’ll try and post the results everyday so I can see if there is any progress.
|Day 3, Looks strange to me.|
|Day two, not very good but best of a bad bunch. Week one is going to be a warm up get me in the mood, then week two I'll start working on some more seriously.|
|Day 4, Practice is good.|
|Day One 23rd November 2015|
