It's Sir Russell working on the oil painting (probably not really, it looks plenty done from my point of view—you know how the pr people like to pose those photos. Besides, it doesn't look like there's paint on the brush OR palette). But it's informative to see the scale of the picture (for those of you interested in the art of the matter as well as the subject).
