Tony Noble studied fine art at Loughborough College of Art. His work was selected for The Sunday Times Watercolour Competition (2009, 2010) and was seen in the exhibitions of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters in 2010 and 2011. Noble was previously included in the BP Portrait Award in 2008, 2010 and 2011.

The portrait shows members of the artist’s family including his wife, sister-in-law and her husband, Shaun, reading the BP 500 Portraits book. The composition also includes a self-portrait in the red-framed mirror. Noble was keen to include elements of technology to make the painting ‘of its time’.
