Richard Stone 52p and £1.01
Born in 1951 the son of a Colchester postman, Richard Stone has painted portraits of the Royal family for most of his career. Although he has had little formal art training, Richard's success is a direct result of a natural talent and a strong determination to succeed in the career he has pursued since childhood. Alongside the royal commissions, other commissions include Baroness Thatcher, Dame Joan Sutherland and an official portrait of Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
David Griffiths 83p
David Griffiths was born in Liverpool in 1939 and brought up in north Wales. His artistic talent can be traced back to his grandfather, also a portrait painter, whose portrait of Prime Minister W. E. Gladstone hung in Liverpool's Walker Art Gallery in 1889. David attended the Slade School of Fine Art and has oil paintings in many university and gallery collections, but it is his painting of Prince Charles on his investiture as Prince of Wales in 1969 that is perhaps his best known.
June Mendoza £1.25 and £1.75
June Mendoza is a member of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters. She started life classes at the age of fourteen and by seventeen was working as an artist producing book jackets, magazine illustrations and some portraits. Her commissioned work includes a number of portraits of the Queen and members of the Royal family, foreign dignitaries and a wide range of portraits of personalities from the arts, music, government, business and the professions.
Michael Noakes £2.42
During his eminent career Michael has been President of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters, Chairman of the Contemporary Portrait Society and Governor of the Federation of British Artists. His portraits are held in collections all over the world and his subjects include actors, royalty, presidents and prime ministers. He was working on the portrait of the Prince of Wales for the King Edward VII's Own Gurkha Rifles when he ran out of paper. The Prince handed him a sheet of memorandum paper so he could continue his series of studies. Once the portrait was completed, Michael gave this sketch to the Prince's batman.
