Show Me the Monet, Series 1 Episode 3 of 10

Duration: 45 minutes

Series following the fortunes of amateur and professional artists from all over the United Kingdom, as they battle it out for a spot at the Show Me the Monet grand exhibition and sale at the Royal College of Art in London, where members of the public and the art world alike will bid to buy the best of the art work on show.

Contenders could stand to make some serious cash, but first they need the seal of approval from three of the art world's toughest critics. To win a spot at the exhibition and the chance to sell and make some money from their work, hopeful artists must first face the Hanging Committee, where their hopes and dreams could be made or dashed.

Mother of two Caroline Thatcher hadn't held a paintbrush for 30 years when she decided to follow her dream and go to art school. But did she make the right decision and what will the judges make of her painting?
