A portrait of Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes by a Teddington artist has been chosen from more than 1,000 entries to appear at an exhibition at Trafalgar Square.

Former-choreographer Teri Anne Scoble competed in Sky Arts’ portrait artist of the year in 2014, and her portrait of the actor and director was selected for the Royal Society of Portrait Painters exhibition.

Ms Scoble, who began painting in 2012, was commissioned by Fellowes to finish the portrait and said she is delighted it has been accepted into the exhibition.

She said: "The competition was scary because you are under pressure to do something in less than four hours, but I would say it was a very positive experience."

Ms Scoble’s painting will be on display at Mall Galleries near Trafalgar Square between April 16 and May 1.
