In this week's video, I show you a behind the scenes peak at being a wild card artist on Sky Arts, Landscape Artist of the Year 2019 - episode 1 - Smeaton's Tower, Plymouth.
You can see a hi-res version of my painting "Drake's Island after the Storm" here: https://mike-jory.pixels.com/featured/drakes-island-plymouth-devon-mike-jory.html

I start out by briefly going through the application process for the competition, then I describe my day, from being filmed, to painting en plein air, meeting famous artists and battling with rain storms. There were lots of possible subjects to paint, including battleships, sail boats, stormy skies, the sea, a lighthouse, grand buildings etc. I elected to paint the view across the water of Drakes Island. All in all, I had a fantastic day! Hope you enjoy the video.
