I entered the Sky Arts Portrait artist of the year today. Its a TV program with the chance of winning a £10,000 commission. I have no misconceptions that I am going to to get on it never mind get through the first heat but I would like to.
After watching the program I know they choose a range of artists with varied skills so I think anyone has a chance. Or I could be in for another rejection letter.
As well as your self-portrait you can enter two further paintings so these are the two I have entered. The closing date is the 16th March so I had more time but I felt I was happy with the results Id had so far and wanted to move on from doing self-portraits.
So I'll let you know when I hear and wish me well.
