Episode Destinations

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

As usually, this series spans the width and breadth of the nation and will obstacle the artists with some of the most spectacular and sophisticated views (press release)

We have to wait around and see which Heat was exactly where right up until the sequence is broadcast.
Nonetheless I do know that filming took location at:  
  • Royal Ascot – which has a costume code see Joan Bakewell and Stephen Mangan higher than – dressed for action! It truly is also probably just one of the most tough spots the artists have ever been asked to paint.
  • the gothic grounds of Castle Ward in Northern Eire, a National Rely on website and the legendary filming spot for Winterfell in Sky Atlantic’s hit sequence Sport of Thrones 
  • Blackpool  (in June 2022): 
    • one particular warmth took position on the Blackpool Pleasure Seashore on what appears to be like incredibly like a bleak breezy day on the Lancashire Coast – see the movie below by Go to Fylde Coastline (who alternatively amusingly thinks it is “Watercolour Obstacle” for most of the video) of presenters sat acquiring a discussion the painters in their pods and the wild cards 
    • I’ve also found a next image of the pods down on the sands of Blackpool Beach front. Weather won’t look significantly different.

Semi Finals and Remaining Spots

The Semi- Finals ended up filmed at the Thames Barrier – which is a a retractable barrier method created to protect the floodplain of most of Better London from extremely higher tides and storm surges.
The Finals ended up held at the picturesque and whimsical Italianate village of Portmeirion in North Wales.

The Commission


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

No pressure there then!

To be correctly honest, I seriously are unable to see how any of the spots will recognize the artist who is very likely to be very best at offering a commission of that nature – specified both equally the Van der Veldes ended up maritime painters. 

Landscape Artist of the Calendar year often would make me think they decide on the Heat Spots initially – before they have signed the deal on the Fee Shopper, area and character of the painting!
