Yesterday we had the pleasure of a visit from the highly esteemed Daphne Todd OBE. A woman many of our members admire, Daphne is a brilliant and noteworthy painter and has many accolades to her name including being the first woman President of The Royal Society of Portrait Painters and winner of the BP Portrait Award in 2010. She is also a familiar face to many as recently judged a television show for amateur painters called ‘The Big Painting Challenge’ on BBC One.
Daphne very kindly allowed us to film her take on our exhibition, which we will be posting very shortly (stay tuned!).
We also had some of our sitters, founders and chairs of the IWF UK, drop in!
Below are some photos from the afternoon..
