This is the portrait I painted for the Doctor Who episode ‘Girl in the Fireplace’, featuring Sophia Myles as Madame de Pompadour.

I painted it in oil on wood copying the painting by Boucher but using Sophia’s lovely face.

It was seen for all of 10 seconds right at the end of the episode, but I think you’ll agree it was unforgettable!

See it on the Doctor Who website here: Madame de Pompadour portrait
