BP Portrait Awards

I managed to pop in quickly to the BP Portrait Award exhibition in the National Portrait Gallery on Monday - I didn't get the whole way round because I was meeting someone for lunch but it was excellent as usual...I'll have to go back in the next week or so and see the last wall...

I especially loved this painting by José Luis Corella...the details are so finely-painted it looks like a photograph, even if you stick your nose as close up to the painting as is humanly possible without setting off the alarms...
