Portrait of the Artist 20" x 16" Oil

I really want to submit a painting to the BP Portrait Award this year, so expect a few more of these between now and February 13th! I want to get right away from their penchant for photo-realism, which must take forever to paint, and submit something fast and furious just to see if it gets anywhere at all. If I paint anything I think is worth spending the £36 submission fee on, I shall. I like this one!

I like this one too--and all the rest--and the one of "Me" on your sidebar. Does it cost 36 pounds per entry--are multiple entries allowed?

Much prefer to see a "painterly" portrait than a photo realistic any day!

I agree, if I want a photo I use a camera. It's the loose painterly ones I always take time to look at.
Well done with this one and yes it would be worth the submission fee to have a go.
