Last year that charity Reprieve asked me to donate another work to their annual fundraising gala dinner and auction. I decided to donate the opportunity to have your portrait done by me, with black electrical tape on glass.

The first portrait was the one posted below, bought by Olivia Colman, the one above was the second, and is of novelist Nick Harkaway.

Nick’s father is John Le Carré, who wrote Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, and The Night Manager. The reason I mention this is that coincidentally Olivia recently won a Golden Globe for her role in The Night Manager. It’s a small world.

I am very happy to have been able to raise £6100 for the charity on the night.
