Congratulations to Olivia Colman

I am incredibly pleased that Olivia Colman won best actress at the Oscars a while ago. The Favourite is a great film, and Olivia is seriously the loveliest, and most down-to-earth person I’ve ever met.

In 2017 she commissioned this portrait of her and her husband Ed, and they were both such a pleasure to draw. I went to their house a few times, and took photos of them, as well as objects and patterns from throughout their house that had some sentimental value to them. I then combined all of these elements into the artwork below.

If you haven’t seen Olivia’s acceptance speech you should definitely watch it, as it proves how truly lovely she is in real life.
