Portrait Artist of the Week Challenge

On Sundays I've been enjoying the Sky Arts Portrait Artist of the Week broadcast (I access it through Facebook on the page of the same name). A 4-hour conversation between a Portrait Artist and a celebrity sitter whilst the Painter paints. The rest of the world (me included) grabs screenshots of the sitter and paints or draws them at leisure and posts them on social media - hoping to be graced with a 'like' from the fine folks at SkyArts!

Russell Tovey - Actor, in Water-soluble pencils,
Leslie Garrett - English Soprano, in Water-soluble Pencils.
 I didn't discover this until the current series was almost done. It has been immensely fun.
