Doncaster Art Fair Artist competed on Sky Arts Landscape Artist

On the 3rd July 2019, Professional Artist and regular Doncaster Art Fair exhibitor, Jill Temporal featured as a competitor on Sky Arts Landscape Artist of the Year which aired on the 29th October 2019.

When we heard that a second Doncaster artist had been selected for the show, which is filmed in Gateshead, we had to catch up with Jill to find out more about her experience. Here is what Jill had to say:

"I am a professional Artist from Doncaster, my studio is in my hometown of Tickhill. I paint local landscapes with a vivid colour palette, I decided to enter the competition to give myself the challenge! I was originally unsuccessful in selection as one of the 8 main pod contestants but was invited to attend as one of the 50 Wildcard artists , it was a fabulous experience! 

Throughout the day I was filmed and interviewed several times by the judges and presenters. I constantly had members of the public and other Wildcard contestants complimenting my work so was quite a strange painting experience to my usual solitary practice, with just 4 hours the pressure was on!

Was a brilliant experience to be involved in. Especially to see how much filming and behind the scenes effort goes into production of an episode!

I met some amazing people and totally enjoyed the experience!"

Once again goes to show how much talent we have in Doncaster. Jill will be exhibiting at the next Doncaster Art Fair, 8th December so do make sure to check her fantastic workout as well as that of the other talented artists that will be in attendance.
