The first sittings for this portrait took place in the spring of 2011 at the Blairs' home in Buckinghamshire, where Adams was able to begin to establish a pose and start working on sketches. Working from life and using reference photographs taken by Adams, the artist worked up several portraits using oils and graphite.
