The Daily Mail had a competition 'Can You Paint the Queen' shortly after the Jubilee celebrations last year. Since then, I heard nothing more as to how many people went in for it or what the winning picture was like, which is a shame. Not that I thought I'd actually win, but it's fun to compete and see what the general public is capable of. If anyone has ever heard what happened, I'd love to know. My portrait is life size but framed in a rectangular frame so that there is a deep border at the bottom, which gives it gravitas!
