Show Me the Monet, Series 2 Episode 9 of 15

Coming up in front of the Hanging Committee is Afsheen, a civil servant from Addlestone in Surrey. She has always dreamt of becoming an artist, but after getting married at 19 and starting a family, art went on the back burner. It is only now, aged 36, that she is finally able to pursue her passion. But with no formal training, will the judges think she has got what it takes to turn her hobby into a career?

Lorna, 64, a retired teacher from Somerset, also dreamt of being an artist when she was young, but her school pushed her down an academic route. Now in her retirement, Lorna is finally following her childhood dream of being an artist. But will the judges think her oil painting, Coastal Path, is strong enough to hang in their prestigious exhibition?

Also facing the judges is Maria, a 23-year-old photographer who dreams of going to India to work for a charity. If she got through to the exhibition and sold a piece, her dream could be one step closer. Will her photograph be selected to go through?
