Clara Drummond won the BP portrait award last week for her work with fellow artist Kirsty Buchanan

You donít need to paint Kirsty any more, people told me, now you have won with this painting,Ē laughed artist Clara Drummond this weekend following her receipt last week of the prestigious BP portrait award, ďbut thatís not how it is. I will carry on. I plan to paint her soon, full length, in the landscape; something monumental.Ē

Girl in a Liberty Dress, Drummondís prize-winning work, is a study of her fellow artist Kirsty Buchanan, and means much more to them both than a bid to net a £30,000 prize purse. It is the latest product of a fruitful friendship that plays with the conventions of portraiture, as well as quietly reshaping ideas about the nature of an artistís muse.
