Artist of the Week challenge compilation

As lockdown measures in the UK are being lifted, I thought I’d take a look back at the paintings I did for the Artist of the Week Challenge organised by Sky TV on their Facebook channel.

Every Sunday during nine weeks the Artist of the Year programme invited a guest sitter to pose for four hours at home in front of their webcam, live on Sky’s Facebook channel.

For me it meant a fun exercise and a great reason to wake up in the morning while I was confined at home.

Scroll down to see the nine portraits I made of: Akram Khan, Bernardine Evaristo, Rankin, Rob Rinder, Will Young, Noel Fielding, Clare Balding, Professor Green and Dame Mary Beard.

Which portrait is your favourite? Let me know in the comments!
