This summer I took part in Sky Landscape Artist of the Year, initially as a wild card.
The first trip was to Herstmonceux Castle in East Sussex on one of the wettest days of the summer!
50 artists were on location, competing for a wild card place and I was lucky enough to win.
The whole day was great FUN despite the weather and there was a great sense of camaraderie among the participants. Didn't like the castle though, hence the cheeky painting, which I seem to have got away with!
I then went through to the semi-final in Cromerty, Scotland which will be broadcast on Tuesday 26th November at 8pm. More news here after that episode.
...was in Cromarty Firth of Shipping Forecast fame. 6 winners of the heats and me, winner of the wild cards, from all 6 locations.
What an honour it was to represent those other 300 brave souls! A fascinatiing location with dramatic skies and ever changing light and weather conditions. But so exciting to try and paint. Was delighted to get through with these other 2 lovely ladies Fujiko Rose, and Patsy Moore to the final at Battersea Power Station next Tuesday, December 3rd at 8pm
