Welcome to the Official Website of Richard Stone, Royal Portrait Painter
In thirty-five years of being a portrait painter, I have been very fortunate to paint most members of the Royal Family, as well as leading members of society and the community, in short, distinguished persons. But I have also had the opportunity to paint people from all walks of life, young and old.
It is a great privilege to be able to step, for a brief time, into the lives of others. To share stories with them, appreciate life from their point of view and put the world to rights is always fascinating. Many sitters have remained good friends.
On this website you will find a selection of notable portraits I have had the privilege to paint over the years. It is, I suppose a retrospective in that it shows the development of my work over the past three decades. But my portraiture is continually evolving, as I am very much a working artist. No matter whom I have painted, I always look forward to my next sitter.
