Sky Arts, Portrait Artist of the Week: Oti Mabuse

Posted by Tony Malone on

I decided to join in the wonderful initiative by Sky Arts and their Artist of the Year programmes with their covid-lockdown specials with guest sitters for their arts series. I wish I had done it sooner! What a wonderful idea.

Here sitter, Oti Mabuse joined thousands of artists across the country to pose as a subject for portrait.  It's been great discussing with fellow artists online via instagram what papers, techniques and 'how to see'.  Thank you Sky Arts & Team for the wonderful idea!

Here is my own watercolour portrait of Oti Mabuse where I have tried to capture her style and energy through joy.
