CONTEMPORARY artist Alison Watt has unveiled her self-portrait at the National Portrait Gallery of Scotland.

The painting, made when she was still a student, has been presented to celebrate December’s reopening of the gallery.

The Glasgow School of Art graduate said there was an element of self-portraiture in all her work, even though she has rarely painted her own image.
