Episode Locations

The two presenters of Landscape Artist of the Yr
Joan Bakewell and Stephen Mangan dressed for the warmth at Royal Ascot

As usually, this sequence spans the width and breadth of the region and will obstacle the artists with some of the most spectacular and elaborate views (press launch)

We have to wait and see which Warmth was exactly where right until the collection is broadcast.
However I do know that filming took put at:  
  • Royal Ascot – which has a costume code see Joan Bakewell and Stephen Mangan over – dressed for motion! It’s also potentially one of the most complicated areas the artists have ever been questioned to paint.
  • the gothic grounds of Castle Ward in Northern Eire, a National Trust web-site and the iconic filming area for Winterfell in Sky Atlantic’s strike series Activity of Thrones 
  • Blackpool  (in June 2022): 
    • a person heat took location on the Blackpool Pleasure Beach on what looks really like a bleak breezy working day on the Lancashire Coastline – see the video clip under by Stop by Fylde Coast (who relatively amusingly thinks it really is “Watercolour Problem” for most of the video clip) of presenters sat obtaining a dialogue the painters in their pods and the wild cards 
    • I have also viewed a second image of the pods down on the sands of Blackpool Seashore. Climate would not look a great deal various. out?v=zO1wljDnTS4

Semi Finals and Last Areas

The Semi- Finals were being filmed at the Thames Barrier – which is a a retractable barrier system developed to protect the floodplain of most of Larger London from exceptionally high tides and storm surges.
The Finals have been held at the picturesque and whimsical Italianate village of Portmeirion in North Wales.

The Commission

This season’s Landscape Artist of the Calendar year winner will
get a £10,000 commission 

No stress there then!

To be correctly truthful, I actually cannot see how any of the destinations will recognize the artist who is probably to be finest at offering a fee of that mother nature – offered each the Van der Veldes ended up marine painters. 

Landscape Artist of the Calendar year from time to time helps make me feel they decide on the Heat Destinations initially – ahead of they have signed the deal on the Commission Customer, location and mother nature of the portray!
