Scenes from Parliament: Theresa May

theresa_may_russell_web

I’m fascinated by Mrs May’s voluminous hair, it seems to have a life of its own. Painted here, in all it’s glory, from a recent Prime Minister’s Questions. It must take hours to sculpt this Thatcheresque helmet of hair every morning—how does the Prime Minister find the time? Perhaps Number 10 has an in-house hairdresser, and it’s all done while Theresa is munching her Cornflakes…

Media: Gouache.

  1. I’d like to ask at least 20 prime minister’s questions about this painting. But I’m in the pub and the mob is too small and the pint is too nice. I’ll just say, “Nice One, Russell!”
