Sir Philip Trousdell Prize for Portraiture

Had some good news!  Remember the portrait I painted at The Art Academy a few weeks ago now, you know this one of Peter:

It won the  Sir Philip Trousdell Prize for Portraiture which was judged by Head of Painting Tai-Shan Schierenberg (in my opinion one of the best portrait artists in the UK today). 

Tai-Shan said that my painting 'captured the sitters particular personality in a very insightful and lively way. It is inventive in composition and paint application.'


I was a joint winner alongside fellow student David McGrath.
