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!

I like the Will Young portrait most, Clara!✨
Especially its lively brushwork, and intensity of expression around the eyes.
thank you Ken! It’s one of my favourites too, as it felt very spontanuous while I painted it 🙂
