Look Mum I'm on the Telly!

October 12, 2016

 

There's something soothing about painting a landscape outdoors.  A gentle breeze, great view, people coming up to chat to you and say nice things about your work, sunburn, being complimented on your twin cracks (on Scafell Pike, behave), getting your coat stuck in a wet paint palette, the Brummie lilt of Frank Skinner wandering about a field talking to people... 

 

These are just some of the fun things that happened during my day filming on "Landscape Artist of the Year" at Wray Castle National Trust site back in June.  In case you're looking for me to cut to the chase, my heat looks as if it's being screened on Tuesday 18th October, 8pm on Sky Arts HD.  Catch up on episode 1 now.

 

For everyone else who wants the gory details, your wish is my command!  Now that the secrecy clause is over, that is (that was a big ask for me, I can't hold my water).  Anyway!  It's a TV show, produced in conjunction with the National Trust.  Heats are held at 3 different NT sites then there's a semi final and final.  Artists are competing for a £10k commission to paint another NT site, Petworth, being part of its permanent art collection.  Each heat has 8 "proper" contestants, who paint in purpose built pods all facing the same view.  There are also 50 "wildcard" artists per heat, who apply and basically paint anywhere within a set area.  A wildcard may also be picked for consideration for the next round.

 

I am a big fan of the show, and one day I just happened to wonder how you'd go about entering.  By sheer chance (although I had missed the main entry), the wildcard artist entry was closing that week.  I knew they only took 50 but I just quickly fired in an application.  I didn't hear back for a bit and never thought more about it (I wasn't going to get a place on a TV show was I?), then I got a call saying I'd just missed out on the site I'd applied for, but would I be able to go to take part at Wray Castle?  Um, yes!!

 

Here's a photo diary and work-in-progress shots.  I'll show the finished piece on Facebook etc after the episode.  I had an absolutely super day, the photos don't do the scenery justice so please tune in to see the full show.  Enjoy!
