Richard Branson live portrait painting

Is there a better moment for portrait painter Peter Engels to have Virgin tycoon Sir Richard Branson to model for him than during an interview?

In front of an audience of 1,600 people of international press, politicians, students and entrepreneurs, portrait master Peter Engels planted his easel on the podium and painted Richard Branson’s close-up portrait on a 2 meter wide canvas. Of course in his typical style of sepia painted with the pallet knife.

In the two and a half hour interview Richard Branson talked about his philosophy and his books. And he received some young entrepreneur guests. Since the interview took place in the diamond city of the world, Antwerp (Belgium), Peter Engels pictured the Antwerp city skyline in the background of the painting.

At the end Sir Richard Branson congratulated Peter Engels with the striking masterpiece and thanked him for donating the proceeds to Branson’s charity organisation Virgin Unite. He even co-signed the painting in the upper left corner which made the canvas even more valuable.
