Through to the final of Sky Arts Landscape Artist of the Year 2018

The Semi-Final of Sky Arts Landscape Artist of the Year is over and I'm in the Final. The competition certainly got tougher at Felixstowe in this weeks episode of Sky Landscape Artist of the Year 2018 - but it wasn't until the end of the days' filming that I really had a chance to see what the other artists had done.

Art Artist Female Gregory Mason nude Oil Painting Paintings sleeping

Sleep: Series 3, Royal Institute of Oil Painters entry 2017

BP Portrait Award 2017 - Greg Mason - Waiting for the Call

Victoria Lucie by Greg Mason This large canvas is my official entry for this years BP Portrait Awards - held at the National Portrait Gallery each year in London.

I like to put the subject as hero so that we experience the 'presence' of the...
