Wow, I never bothered to look into the wild card slots, but you can read the rules and regulations here. Among the many things in there:

  • wild cards must pay for their own travel to/from the locations and provide their own materials (in contrast, non-wild card artists selected to compete are given £50 for travel costs)
  • if chosen as a semi-finalist or finalist, the show will pay for hotel and travel costs (which must be pre-approved beforehand so no splashing out at fancy hotels) and a £25 daily subsistence - unless you are from the Falkland Islands in which case they will pay for nothing
  • the wild cards have four hours to complete their paintings (but they are allotted six hours total to be there)
  • there is no guarantee that the judges will even look at your painting

I recently binged all available episodes of this. What a fantastic program. Do you know when/if there is going to be a 2020 series?

It will be televised sometime in the Autumn.

Does it say what their problem with the Falkland Islands is?

Thanks. Do you know why their got rid of Frank Skinner as the host? I found him wittier and more knowledgeable than the new guy. And he had an adorable rapport with Tai.

I don't think they got rid of him, I think he quit, but I don't know why. I think Stephen makes a good replacement.

I could only find one item about it that said the entire staff wrote a letter saying how difficult he was to work with so they canned him. But have no idea if that was real or just gossip. If he retired or went on to other projects you would think they would have wished him well or something instead of him just disappearing without mention. The new guy is okay, but not as sharp or witty as Frank.

I don't know. During an episode of Portrait Artist, Stephen was discussing the background, which was a wall of clocks & was inspired by an artist, with one of the painters & they started talking about how the artist was known to be man mad. Without blinking an eye Stephen looked at the wall of clocks & said something like "do you think they misunderstood when she said she want a wall of clocks?" & I nearly died I was laughing so hard.
