Exhibition - BP Portraits Award 2009

I went to see this (free!) exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery. At first I didn't even know it was just paintings so I was really amazed by what I saw there. For those who don't have the chance to go see the exhibition, here are the winners:

BP Young Artist Award
'Benfica Blue'- Mark Jameson

Third Prize
'Manuel' - Annalisa Avancini

Second Prize
'Tom' - Michael Gaskell

First Prize
'Changeling 2'* - Peter Monkman

*I really liked the story around the painting. The piece is part of a series of paintings Peter Monkman did about his daughter. He painted her at different parts of her life, monitoring how she grew and changed through her life.
