SELF portrait winner

The Royal Society of Portrait Painters have named the winner of their new SELF prize –  Jan Mikulka from Prague.  His portrait is so photo realistic that my first thought on seeing it was that it reminded me of the identity photos you see in black taxi cabs. I can admire the workmanship in them but I’m in two minds whether I like photo realistic paintings or not.
