Amateur painting competition. The artists are on the south coast to tackle landscapes, battling the elements in Hastings as they paint outdoors.
Mariella Frostrup and the Rev Richard Coles are once more on hand to oversee the battle of the brushes, as the nine remaining amateur artists face their next challenges.
In episode two, the amateur artists are on the English south coast to tackle landscapes, battling the elements in Hastings as they paint outdoors. Their first test is a tricky one, as they must accurately portray the straight lines and diminishing perspective of Hastings' newly refurbished pier.
The next day there is a sea change, and it's four seasons in one day as the meteorological muses throw everything they have at the intrepid artists. This time they are on the pier itself as they face the shoreline to take on the landscape, architecture and beachfront that makes Hastings such an iconic town. Once again the mentors are on hand to help them navigate the challenge to capture perspective, composition and sense of place, but some artists are more receptive than others.
The public panel is made up of Hastings locals, who vote to keep in their favourite for one more week, but it's up to the judges to decide who goes.
