I won the award for my proposal (not my painting). My proposal is to explore how fashion and lace was represented in 17th century portraiture and I will visit art collections, lace collections in the UK, The Netherlands and Belgium. I will then create works inspired by all this and these works will be displayed in the BP Portrait Award 2014 exhibition.
I will keep a diary of my research and travel on this blog so I hope you will join me on my journey!
Besides all this I recommend going to see the BP exhibition as it is a great show and there are some real great paintings to see. I am honoured to have a painting hanging amongst such greats!
More photos to follow soon
