I'm glad you've posted it Edward. Some of us are discussing the competition on the Forum. Lesley chose this one to keep didn't she. I think it was the most exciting version of her.

And amazing when it was produced in 4 hours without prior knowledge of the sitter, plus the pressure of the occasion.

A brilliant effort in 4 hours. Good luck with your future career.

This was my favourite on the show. By far the most exciting portrait. annette scholefield

Thanks for posting this it's good to see it again. It's great.

I don't have Sky so thank you for posting. I concur with comments so far.

Would have loved this to have won! Great portrait.

Beautiful portrait, Edward, and interesting background.

Wonderful background, with portrait coming out of it brilliantly, ...the best by far of the three Leslry portraits, and without doubt should have been in the top three, if not the winner.

Good to see it here Edward and congratulations for making it to the competition. It's a great portrait!

Thanks 🙏 😊

I was there, watching you produce this excellent likeness. It was my favourite on the day.
