National Portrait Gallery/Taylor-Wessing Portrait Prize shortlist




























































Here is the shortlist for the NPG portrait prize - portraits by Lottie Davies, Hendrik Kerstens, Catherine Balet and Tom Stoddart. I like the Lottie Davies picture, Quints, best so hope that wins.

My favourite from the whole competition is of course my entry, not shortlisted but in the show and below.

I agree. I really like the Lottie Davies quints. But yours come in a strong second. After this week I'm finding the natural portraits more inviting.
I'm really finding the word verification annoying. Is it really necessary?

Nice image Colin. I've also been selected for the show, maybe see you next week. My website, if you want a look, is www.lucasage.com. Good to see a natural light image do well!
