“Some artists like to do their sketches or paintings during the live 4 hours, which is not always easy when they are talking and waving their arms around, but I prefer this way as it seems fresher. Sky Arts always provide a screenshot for those who prefer to make a more finished portrait and there is always a video of the session on the Sky Arts Facebook page so you can catch up if you miss some or all of it live. There is a lot to learn from the guest artist of the week, the presenters and judges giving their tips and ideas (same people as on TV shows) and the conversation between sitter and artist is always interesting and entertaining. The four hours fly by very quickly.” Dot Lowe GAG Secretary
These portraits were done by Tracy Quarrington-Page, Peter Gibson and Dot Lowe during the recent live sessions with Sky Arts.
