It's crunch time as the three finalists get four nerve-wracking hours to paint The Lord of the Rings actor Sir Ian McKellen. Who will the judges crown the competition winner? Portrait Artist of the Year is a competition art show aiming to find the best portrait painter of the year. Each episode features a regional competition and contestants are challenged to produce a portrait of one of three famous sitters. As the competition goes on, three artists will remain, and these finalists will have their work displayed in the world-famous National Portrait Gallery in London. The winner eventually receives a $10,000 commission to become a permanent part of the British Library!
