Great night out at the reception for the new director of the National Portrait Gallery Nicholas Cullinan. Everyone seemed to agree that he seems like a nice guy. Afterwards cocktails a plenty at the Groucho Club with Jonathon Yeo, Ben Ashton and Edward Sutcliffe. The most fab night in awhile!
Take a virtual flip thru the online catalogue for the 'Beyond The Hype' exhibition. Edward Lucie-Smith has penned the catalogue essay so look out for his insights. The show is now on at the Darren Baker Gallery in Londons sunny Charlotte Street. Four artists, two floors, hyperrealism...open thru May the 1st.
This video will give you a good idea of what the BP Portrait Award is all about, now showing at the National Portrait Gallery in Edinburgh.
My portrait of the dear Edward Lucie-Smith is shown in the video. Better hurry...today is the last day of the exhibit at the beautiful gallery in Scotland before it moves to Wales for its final stop. More on that soon.

Had a very interesting development this week and I shall post more details very soon. The Darren Baker Gallery in Londons swishy Charlotte Street are teaming up with Isis Phoenix Arts for an interesting new show.
Yes, the colour chef himself Michael Harding stopped by the Cass Art flagship store in Islington to share and muse about what goes into producing his handmade artists oil colours.
I found his knowledge and passion for what he does impressive and his enthusiasm infectious. Some great new colours to boot.
You may wish to stay tuned for some exciting news coming soon...

One of the new colours Amethyst was a personal favourite as well as the subtle but rich Italian Green Umber.
