Sky Arts Portrait of the Week
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the Sky Arts Portrait of the Year competition cannot be conducted as it would be under normal times. So instead, the programme decided to host live sittings via their Facebook page for all artists to tune in and paint the celebrity of the week from home. This is my entry, painted in oils on canvas and completed in under 4 hours. The sitter was the dancer Akram Khan.
