Portraits

A few of the personal images of family and friends that I have managed to capture with my camera.


And some of the portraits that others have captured with their paint brushes.


These beautiful paintings along with many others are part of the BP Portrait Award 2009 exhibition at the Dean Gallery in Edinburgh. Not only do these amazing paintings show the incredible talent and skill of the painter, many also show the obviously very intimate relationship between the artist and the sitter.

I had a lovely afternoon wandering from room to room looking at these wonderful images and I can tell you that the winner was the oil painting of the 'magical - if slightly unsettling' young girl (bottom left) which was painted by her father.
