The successful winner of Landscape Artist of the Year 2017 will receive a £10,000 commission for a British Institution’s permanent art collection and £500 of art materials from Cass Art.
The show visits a series of stunning locations around the UK and for the semi-finals, the competition filmed at Castle Farm Lavender, located in Shoreham, Sevenoaks. The remaining contestants battle it out to paint the stunning setting of Castle Farm which is within the largest lavender field in the UK. Visitors to the farm were invited to come along and support the artists when the episode was being filmed. Castle Farm has also previously featured in the psychological thriller Road Games (2016).
