PORTRAIT ARTIST OF THE YEAR
7.30PM, TUESDAY, FOXTEL ARTS
YOU might not recognise all the celebrity sitters in this UK competition series, but the talent of the artists is undeniable. Painters are challenged to create portraits of stars including Doctor Who’s David Tennant (above) in only four hours. The best of each sitting move through until three finalists are each given a special commission, painting former Spice Girl Geri Horner (nee Halliwell); fashion icon Zandra Rhodes or designer Kenneth Grange. The winner will pocket close to $20,000 and another commission, painting Sex and the City’s Kim Cattrall.
