Just dropped off a print of this pic to go into the annual National Portrait Gallery portrait competition.
Well I like it. It’s of Alison Rayner leading her group ARQ at the Vortex. It’s nothing like the sort of pic that gets picked by the NPG so I have even less chance than usual of being one of the 60 winners (no ££ prize except for the 1st), but if they fancy something different, here’s my offering.
Sadly the detail in the shadows that I spent hours putting into the image didn’t come through in the overpriced print I had made. A lesson in itself. One thing to miss about leaving my teaching job is being able to work with the techs there, in their time off of course, to tweak prints till they come through right.
[Update: they were not convinced. But Alison is using this pic and others on her new CD, August]
