As the search continues nationwide to find the Landscape Artist of the Year, people are in discussion about who they think will be this year’s winner.
Joan Bakewell and Frank Skinner take artists to several gorgeous locations to paint National Trust properties across the UK, if you are an art lover (which I’m sure you are if you’re reading this post) then this series is a must see. Sky customers can watch this on catch up if you aren’t up to date.
The Landscape Artist of the Year will win a range of amazing prizes, how does a £10,000 commission for a British institution’s permanent collection and £500 of art materials sound? The final episode is going to be an exciting one. We’d love to start a conversation going on your thoughts so far, are there any products you’re eager to pick up because of a technique you’ve seen used? Catalyst Wedges have been very popular since they were used on the show.
There isn’t a shortage of wonderful artists around the UK whose abilities vary, through the competition each artist’s capabilities become clear and towards the end of each series the locations get much more complex. By watching each artists individual process you see the landscape through the artists eyes and they visually create how they perceive it.
Who are you backing this year? The final is aired on Sky Arts, December 9th at 5:00pm. The three remaining artists will be competing for the last time at Winkworth Arboretum in Surrey, before one is crowned Landscape Artist of the Year.
